I Hope That This Never Happens To You
You know the feeling when you find a fantastically priced house in the perfect neighborhood, with all the right schools and the gorgeous parks? It's like you've hit the jackpot. But they never tell you about that one strange neighbor .... with a problem... until it's way. too. late.
It all started like any other quiet, stay-at-home evening in the Finnegan household.
A family dinner,
Mrs. Finnegan and little Fanny watching Battlestar Galactica,
and Mr. Finnegan and young Barkley doing some sudoku,
but they couldn't shake the feeling that something wasn't quite right.
It was as though they were being watched somehow.
They tried to escape, but they were really no match.
A criminal investigation was conducted where a suspicious piece of downy hair was found with a trace of tuna fish residue. The authorities haven't been able to question the Finnegan's neighbor, Crazy Eye Mishi, who coincidentally didn't report in for duty at her job down by the docks that night. Neither the Finnegans, nor Crazy Eye, were ever seen or heard from again.
