  • "Who's there?" "DEATH" "Death Who?" "NO, SERIOUSLY DEATH!" "I'm just not getting this joke. Is this Brad?" "LISTEN, ARE YOU GOING TO OPEN THIS?"

  • "If you're Death, ha ha, then why should I let you in? Why don't you try the neighbours." "BECAUSE, YOUR NAME IS ON MY LIST. MRS. BEAZLY IS NEXT WEEK! NOW OPEN THIS DOOR!"

  • I stood as still as I could behind my locked door, listening to Death breathing on the other side. NO, dammit! I would NOT let him in! Silently, I shoved my piano against the door

    I looked up transom & it said it was something to do with a boat. But now I'm not so sure.

    I did not know, lucielucie, but I see a transom *is* a part of a boat. I was thinking of a transom window (here's a pic: http://www.huntllc.com/blog/what-is-the-purpose-of-a-transom-window.html) which I remember from grade school in southern California. Everybody looked forward to the chance to be the window monitor cuz you got to open the 12 or so windows around the classroom by using a long pole with a hook on the end to grab the little metal loop at the top of the window and pull it down to open.
