The lonely and dispirited homeowners in our town’s back country have invited town residents living in more desirable parts of town to travel north an hour this Saturday to see what The Fringe is all about.
“Everyone still up here will be attending”, back country booster Mark Pruner told FWIW. “That’s, um, thirteen families, at last count— three of those will be moving to Florida in October, which is why we moved the date up, but for now, yup, thirteen. That’s not including our alpaca herds, who will also be attending. I’m pretty sure all the pretty horses have either already been eaten or reclaimed by the banks, but if there are any left, they’ll be here too.
“And we’ve enlisted the help of our servants and caregivers, so there’ll be food stands offering native specialties — ever had roasted guinea pig on a stick? delish! — and our outdoor crews will be offering lawn tractor rides, so fun for all!”
Pruner said there will be no rain date: “Look around you,” he suggested to FWIW’s Lost Cause correspondent, “we’ve got something like 1.2 million square feet of empty housing around here. It rains, we just go inside, so fire up your GPS and come find us!”
