madame bernice


“Steve’s brother is coming with his new girlfriend,” Ralph said.
She’s part Puerto Rican, part Sephardic Jew, part Moroccan Moslem & entirely impossible to understand.”

“I’ve heard about her,” Dale sighed. “She’s into the occult. She’ll try to get us involved with things like seances and tarot cards.”

The boys agreed that they’d politely humor Bernice at the party and then fast find someone else to hang with, lest they go entirely nuts.

“Wouldn’t that be a perfect present for someone like her?”, Ralph wondered aloud as they passed a garage sale. “I can’t help thinking she’d like it.”

    They may be in for a surprise if they give her that present. Interesting take on the prompt, a glimpse into the guys’ minds.

    What should one buy a jewish moslem occultist? Odd though it may seem, not a problem I’ve wrestled with much. Thanks for providing the answer Larry. 😉

    That statue does seem other-worldly. People come in all varieties these days. Their views may be different, but at least they’ll be polite. Well done, Larry. 🙂 — Suzanne
