Going out for the evening, Hulga?

November 10, 2009

Here you go, Bob, a nice martini. Very dry, three olives, just how you like it.

What do yo think of the house? Yeah, I love these huge old Gothic places. You found the bathroom okay?

What? You went UPSTAIRS? No, that’s fine, but… Look Bob, did you notice a large reinforced metal door with four deadbolts on it?


Uh-oh. Bob, this is real important. You didn’t undo those bolts, did you?


Crap, Bob, I think you let my sister Hulga get loose.

I hear her scepter on the back stairway. Don’t even breathe, Bob. She can smell fear. I’ll get the tranquilizer gun.

That’s her! She isn’t like us, Bob. Obviously, she’s from Belgium!

You know, just the other day I was thinking about the lack of sceptres in today’s fashion. I was lounging around the house in my Valentino gown thinking ‘you know what’s missing from this outfit? A sceptre’.
