Beast in the Jar

Carl here. A while back, I had an experience so horrifying that I hesitate to share the details for fear of offending sensibilities. I was minding my own business (as Corgis most often do), when I happened upon a picnic table. Now, picnic tables often mean food, so I jumped up.

A lick of mustard and a few cookie crumbs later, I approached a glass jar. “Perhaps it’s relish,” I said to myself. But, what I saw next made me quiver. In that instant I knew how Inkie felt at many points in the book, The Five Names.

Unlike me, Inkie was afraid of many things. One of his greatest terrors was that he would happen upon a Loman-eating beast, who would devour him for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, whatever the case might be.

Throughout the book, he heard them stalking the corridors of darkness. Often they shrieked aggressively and ground their teeth to points likely so sharp that they were invisible to the human eye. Very scary.

Did Inkie ever encounter the vile creatures? If I told, I would spoil the book. I can only say that I, Carl, have faced the evil-in-the-jar and have survived with my soul intact.

 

P.S. The following is a clever subliminal marketing tool

    Perhaps Carl’s adventures could be made into a book (like a physical book). It could be called “The Adventures of Carl the Corgi” with some kind of quirky subtitle.

  2. I read it. I read it. I read it. I read it.
    My turn:
    Read The Darcys of Pemberley.
