I shall be ordering my chocolate eyeballs directly from the manufacturer, by the case. It’s much less expensive that way. I’m hoping and planning for 300-400 visitors.
I’m sorry to hear that about your brother.
I have a very realistic flocked rat that I used to take to school in October. The first student in each period to find Mabel would get a prize. One time I hid her behind the teacher’s computer and when she saw Mabel during class, she was so startled that she screamed. The kids thought that was the best prize ever.
Cue Burt: mic drop in panel 6!
“I don’t trust you with my eyes closzzzzzzzz…”
If Lupin closes his eyes then says “Fine” then he gets the last word as he can then neither see nor hear any response Goldie makes.
When my oldest girl graduated they had a John Williams medley and the Imperial March started just as she entered the auditorium. She and every other graduate switched from walking to strutting because you can’t just walk to that tune.
I call it “The Mom Look” and I don’t even have to give it to my students. I just ask them if they want me to give it to them. I usually get a very subdued, “No ma’am, sorry ma’am.”
I spent months after Marc died trying to get his cat Lily to live at peace with Database and Reboot. Poor Reboot, the oldest and only male, was caught between both of the girls and they hated each other. Reboot even stopped eating because of the stress and I finally had to move Lily outside. Now she’s happy because as far as she’s concerned, Database doesn’t even exist and when Reboot escapes the house, he doesn’t bother her. Database refuses to even go near an outside door and couldn’t care less what happens to an outdoor interloper. We do bring Lily in the house when the weather is really bad, but she stays in the living room or Jora’s room and Database retreats to my room.
