sam looked out across the yard.

grasshoppers sprang up from the unmowed lawn only to disappear
again after floating sideways
in the sultry breeze.

angie kissed his cheek. "sam,
it'll be a blast. you can always
find another nursing job if this
doesn't work out."

"i'll give my supervisor my two
week notice tomorrow."

"you won't regret it sam."

"i'll be your dummy, i'll be your
chameleon & i'll be your apparition, but if you hypnotize me into doing the fat lady, i'll
disappear for sure."

"i don't share my men sam, you'll
see."
