  • Marie let herself in. Joel was eating breakfast. "You went to him again?" he said. "I didn't expect you to be here," she replied. "It's my house."

  • "And I pretend it's mine," she said. He said, "so did you go to him in the biblical sense?" "Go to doesn't have a biblical sense, just that stupid neologistic one. He's my go to."

  • "Well, I'm glad that's settled. Cup of tea?" Before she could respond, he thumped her over the head with his Bible. She came to in the Pentagram Chamber, hearing his wicked

  • She found the forks under the front doorstep just in time. They had been stolen by a crow who loved shiny objects. The problem was they were covered in bird poop. Her poor party.

    I didn't leave you to do all the cleaning up! It's just that you're the only person who knows how to get fondu out of carpets.

    If you are washing a ton, you need to first drain the swamp, remove the alligators, who we all know, and replace them with alligators that we don't know. And we'll forget that they are alligators; we'll call it a lobby. Give them an office building on K Street and we'll have lunch on it.
