#87 Lord of QuarrelFebruary 23, 2018
Well, that was fun, but we really need to get back to leaving the keep. Wait... is that a Piff?
Piff: Blasphemous fodder-ticklers! How dare you enter the authorative vicinity of the supreme crowned head! You heath cobblers, you worn-out shoes! You winter-slapped suckers of the sun! Your mothers dance with bears in the forest! You should swing your heads at a bit of pudding until your snouts tingle with immoral acrimony! Even the moon grins at your overcooked pastries and lemons pour margarites in your saddlebags! May a thousand camels lick your toes and deers tangent sideways next to your supper while trees pose fanatically and children cry as they gaze upon your furry mugs!
Narration: It was a sour Piff.
Big Sister says:
I started making preparations. This house needs an attic.
You can sit in the corner and help hand me comics while I hammer.
C’mon. I’ll even let you read some in the meanwhile. These are my this week’s recommendations!
