TITLE

EARLY EASTER MORNING, 1938... GOD WATCHING FROM HIS ROOM NEAR THE TOP OF THE TOWER... COOKIE ALONG WITH HER HALF-SISTER KATHLEEN... BOTH GIRLS DONE UP IN THEIR FINEST... HAVING BEEN BRIEFED CONCERNING WHAT THEY MIGHT EXPECT THAT MORNING... MULTIPLE, WELL MEANING, ALBEIT ILL-CONCEIVED SUMMARIES CONTRIBUTED BY THEIR SIBLINGS DURING EASTER EVE; SUMMARIES INCLUSIVE OF HUGE ROUND ROCKS SEEMINGLY ROLLING ON THEIR OWN, UNEXPLAINED GRAVITY DEFYING ASCENSIONS OF THE DEAD, IMPREGNATED BUNNIES BEARING EMBELLISHED PROGENY... DEPOSITED IN THE DEEP SPRING GRASS... HUNTED - GATHERED UP BY BASKET-BEARING CREATURES.... GRAVES HARBORING SPIRITS WOULD OPEN UP... A TORNADO WOULD COME...

MADE COOKIE WET HER PANTS AND HER'S EYES TO POP!!! SHE GOT OUT AND PICKED ALL THE FLOWERS SHE COULD BEFORE THE WIND HIT THE GARDEN .

MADE KATHLEEN CRY!!! KATHLEEN'S PRE-INFORMED, ANTICIPATIVE EXPECTATION WAS THAT SOMETHING OTHER THAN A TORNADO MIGHT BE PASSING OVER... PERHAPS AN AIRBORNE SARDINE... OR, BETTER YET. A MEADOW LARK WHICH, LINGERING FOR A BRIEF RESPITE ON ONE OF COOKIE'S PYRACANTHA STEMS, MIGHT WELL SUCCUMB TO EXHAUSTION, AND FALL TO THE GROUND...

WHO NOSE? DOG KNOWS!

IT ALL WAS, AND REMAINS SO TERRIBLY COMPLEX... AND A BIT POINTLESS, TO BOOT. ONE WOULD HAVE HAD TO AT LEAST HALFWAY BEEN THERE TO UNDERSTAND...
