I Give In
This afternoon, I'm going to purchase the latest Harry Potter book. Once it's in my hands, I shall read it cover to cover without stopping for food, water, or social companionship. So if you don't hear from me for a little while, don't alert the authorities.
Just one last bit of weirdness before I leave for the bookstore. Last Sunday, Brooklyn residents woke to see a beautiful, barefoot young woman sleeping on a ledge ABOVE the door of brownstone. According to this report (with pictures), she was wearing a bridal gown and clutching a bag shaped like a teddy bear. Inside the bag was a diamond ring in a Tiffany box.
The woman didn't utter a single word as police officers helped her down. No one knows why she was in Brooklyn--or how she climbed up to the ledge in an ankle-length wedding dress.
If anyone's looking for a good way to start a story, this is it.
