"It is the very error of the moon. She comes more near the earth than she was wont. And makes men mad." - William Shakespeare, Othello
Well, here we are looking down the barrel of a week that culminates on Friday the 13th with the emergence of the full moon. Researchers tend to downgrade the lunar effects on animals and people, but I know better. I'm starting to see that old familiar look in the eyes of my customers and people on the street.
Just yesterday upon my return home, the woman of the house informs me that one of the neighbors, a paranoid schizophrenic, called the law the night before. The neighbor told police that someone had broken into her house, and pulled all of the teeth from her cat's mouth. A heinous crime indeed, provided the cat actually exists. My response, "Get ready babe, this is just the beginning."
And to be honest, I'm starting to feel a little frisky myself. So, if I survive the lunatic onslaught this week, and avoid prosecution for my own nocturnal indulgences this Friday the 13th, I hope to report back hopefully with an interesting story, or two.
