Trick or Treaters are not all kids as campers are not all happy and I wish
the banks would just start lending or improve their customer service you know I have to use a plastic keypad just to check my balance which is invaluable

in the fight against fraud so when
you bowled towards me outside Bank
in the costume of the dead that is to say masked and painted I had to ask the value of that feint of pure hostility you are clearly having fun which is a good thing don’t let me stop you

on my island none of this would be true
