Halfway through my favorite TV talk show (Soaprah) the phone began to ring. Buddy was on the other end.
“Hey, Bella! How’s it going?”
“Hi, Buddy. Not much... just -” I muted the TV, “reading. What’re you up to?”
“I was just calling to see if you’d heard about the new magician in town.”
I got up and paced over to the fridge, looking for a snack. “No - who is it?”
“Sigmund Heisenberg - and he’s all over the news. He’s refusing to open his show because he’s convinced he’s lost a tiger.”
Well that got my attention: “A tiger?! Loose, in Littlehaven?”
I imagined Buddy nodding. “Scary, right? Anyway, apparently there’s some new acts that are being shown here while Sigmund tries to find the missing tiger. The tickets are going real quick, so a bunch of us were going to head on over and see if we could catch a show. You wanna come with?”
“I dunno, Buddy... I mean, if the main magician isn’t performing-”
“You don’t understand! The replacement acts are folks from Littlehaven! We’re heading over to see who it is. Might be someone from your street!”
I stood in my kitchen with half a sandwich lodged in my mouth. Now that sounded interesting...
