Good news is my husband isn’t a serial killer.
The bad news is there is blood pouring out of our basement refrigerator…
Ever have one of those months?
Well, I’m back from my West Coast visit to the Bother-in-law! Picked up the flu on the plane ride there, fell sick a day later, brought down everyone else in the family like dominoes and we all spent five days sweating and coughing. Whee! Typhoid Amy. Luckily, we did get to see the Winchester Mystery House before we all succumbed. It was built by the wife of the heir to the Winchester gun fortune. A psychic told her if she ever stopped building the house she would die, so she went a little nuts and ended up with a giant mansion featuring stairways to nowhere, doors that open into walls… I used to read about it as a kid so I was excited to see it. Here we all are, with no idea the phlegmy fate awaiting us…
Oh, what about that blood, you ask? Gosh I almost forgot. My mother put the Christmas turkey in my fridge almost two weeks early and it melted. Which in the end was good, because when you leave for six days and come back to find blood dripping from your fridge, you sort of start to wonder what your parents do in your house when you’re away…
We called the Butterball hotline and they said the chances of us dying are about 15%, so not bad. Of course, we had a to put up a baby gate so when the zombie turkey comes to life it can’t climb the basement stairs and kill us in our sleep.
Mike says we’re all going to get “Turkanosis,” so if you don’t hear from me after Christmas, you know what happened.

The year is 1999 and the millennium is fast approaching. Baseball fan and thirty-two-year-old confirmed bachelor and architect, Seth Miller, is content with his life, as long as the Yankees win and his mother stays away from his Greenwich Village apartment. Seth’s life, though, is turned upside down when he is informed by his overbearing and overprotective mother that he is God’s youngest son and by default the second coming of Christ.
