George went to his house and slammed the door.
“Honey is that you?” his wife called from the living room.
“Yes honey, umm, I have some bad news.”
“What did you get fired?”
“Umm actually, yes.”
“WHAT! What did you do this time?”
“I helped this guy out, and things went sour, so they fired me.”
“What are we supposed to do?”
“I don’t know darling.”
“Well find a job, now! Go downtown or something.”
“Right now? I need sleep!”
“Well I need money. Get out!”
George walked out and headed downtown to find a job, or maybe just to the bar.
To get out of the house and be safe once again, Fred decided to take the boys downtown, to the big park in the middle of the city.
“C’mon Calvin, Sean, you want to go to the park?”
Calvin jumped for joy. “Yes! We can go ‘vestigate!!”
“Alright!” Sean shouted.
“Wait wait wait. Investigate? What are you boys up to?” Fred was starting to worry about his kid’s imagination.”
“Well, Daddy, yesterday in the park, a man came outta the sand an’ then we followed him, an’ then he disappeared an’ it was totally awesome! We wanna know where he went.”
“Calvin says there’s a crap door!”
“No, Sean, a trap door. That’s what magicians do!”
“Who is this guy? Why was he in the sand? Boys, this is important. What did the man look like?”
“He was kinda short with a red jacket an’ a hat. He needed ta shave too.”
“The unicorn!” Fred said, under his breath. “Well, let’s get going then. I have some investigating to do myself.”
“YAY!” The boys said in unison.
