13 December. Friday the 13th!

            Today is the day before the craft sale and tensions are rising. Many people are counting on items coming today in the mail so they can sell them (modified) tomorrow. The fact that these things haven’t come yet is bringing stress to much of the community who hang around the front entryway every night around chore time, waiting for the UPS truck to come. People are working to complete their projects, not an easy task when the main things in them have not arrived yet. Thoughts have come up about slaughtering Joann (from Joann’s fabrics, a place from which people’s items have not yet come) in her sleep. I cannot say that is a good idea because her family is probably full of millionaires (thanks to her) and they would have the money to find a good lawyer and they might be charged with first-degree murder. That would be much before they had a chance to explain that the items for their 7th grade project had not come on time and that Joann had lied by saying the items would come in 5-7 business days. However, I do think that this is a great opportunity for us to realize that no one can predict the future (not even a millionaire like Joann) and even though we counted the days ahead to make sure our projects would come on time, we have no idea what stopped them from doing just that.  This would have been an excellent time for someone to show they would not judge without knowing the whole story, but I suppose we are all yet to learn that.
