“Catch that goat!” a lady in rags shouted to me on my way to the  jazz clubs. I chased the little fella into a nearby cemetery where a cornered him between two large headstones. Tough work in a dress and heels.

“Good bring him for the sacrifice,” the stringy-haired hag motioned to me when she caught up.

“You’re not going to kill him, are you?” I asked nervously. I wasn’t a vegetarian, but I didn’t want the little guy to die on my count.

“No, silly girl, I need a virgin for that,” she hissed threateningly. My turn to run.

    Yikes! What a turn around. No good turn goes unpunished, I believe the saying goes. Hope the girl gets away.

  2. Dear Jen,

    Just not her day, is it? I’d say lose the heels and get thee out of there! Good one.

    shalom,

    Rochelle

  3. Note to self: avoid all hags, especially those asking me to catch and bring them any animal.
