By Cerridwen Stucky [ Wed Dec 9 2015 12:01 PM ]

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #333: Trouble at the Museum
By Brutus De Cervantes [ Tue Feb 4 2014 3:23 PM ]
I arrive at a museum. G and my family go in ahead of me. I decide to buy the $10 ticket instead of the $15 one. I ask my sister if she's seen G. She tells me instead about some great surprise our mother has found. I walk down a hallway on the third level. I grab hold of a portal pillar made of mud and stone and peer down into the courtyard below. Under wooden vegas covered with vines I see some sheep grazing. The partition I'm holding crumbles and falls. I close my eyes and wait for the crash but hear only silence. I stroll away nonchalantly.
