And the winner is…
I ran a hand through my hair, feeling the stiffness of the gel I hadn’t washed out the night before. It had been a club night. It was an ‘I’m thirty-one years old, single, and partying my brains out in L.A. with Donnie Wahlberg kind of night.’ It was–
“Ahh bababa cogh.”
The noise seemed to come out of nowhere…unti l I looked down. The moment I did, I quickly looked back up. I looked right. Then I looked left as far as I could.
“Hm ka pa?”
I looked back down. It stared up at me, a big line of drool traveling down its face. The tequila shots from last night threatened to come back up.
It was a practical joke. It was a fake baby. Fake drool. Some dipshit kid had infiltrated our bus haven and left his home economics project on my door-er-bus step. Maybe the thing would run out of batteries. Maybe–
“Fo wa qat.”
A chubby hand grabbed at something sticking up out of the carseat. It looked like a note of some sort. The baby brought it to its mouth and began to chew on the corner, producing even more drool. I thought I was going to faint. There was only one word, written in black, on the front.
All it said was…
Pengi and evergreenwriter83!
