Say you have a daughter who’s a junior in high school. Say she is head
of the homecoming committee making floats. Say they decide on a float
where the school mascot, the Pioneer, shoots their rivals the Wolves.
Say she tells you she needs several colors of crêpe. Say you promise
to pick it up. Say before making the Party City parking lot, you drive twenty-eight miles over the state line.

Her story “Bug Bar" was recently published in Chamber Four.
