In the last — which also happens to have been the first — chapter of An Infectious Legacy, Sara Simptoms set fire to her kitchen in Lunar Lakes shortly after her husband, Kurtis, tried unsuccessfully to find some new friends. Today, Kurtis has decided to go to work wearing his swim trunks and a rad shirt that looks like a kitty cat is clawing its way down his back.
So, Kurtis, I know that you’re artistic and whatnot, and that you want to be a Visionary or something, so what did you choose as a career track? Stylist, perhaps? Architect, maybe?
Er….I see. Okay then, moving right along.
Inspired by her hubby’s motivation, Sara decided that it was high time she started working on a novel or something. So she moseyed on over to the local library where she promptly, creatively, and enthusiastically…
…broke the computer?
Sara decided to abandon the broken computer — as well as the little bit of progress she had made on her first novel — and return home to….
Break the shower?! Seriously, Sara, come on!! ::very frowny face::
“Give me a break (teehee, puns). Who’s the genius who decided to make me unlucky?”
…..well played, Sara. Well played.
“Hey babe, watching you get all wet while you fixed that shower (even though I’m the handy one) got me thinking that I’d like to see more of that. Wanna go on a pool date?”
“Oh, sure, why not…after all, I can’t possibly break the pool, can I?”
CUE EPIC POOL DATE!!!!
END EPIC POOL DATE!!!!!
After floating about aimlessly and making fun of the interesting swimwear choices of their fellow Lunar Lake…ians (khakis, guy? Really?), Sara (who did not, in fact, break the pool) and Kurtis went back home to enjoy a nice, fire-free dinner of sandwiches or something.
“I don’t always eat sandwiches, but when I do, I prefer PB&J.”
“Kurtis…are you playing with your food again?”
“Stay hungry, my friends.”
