The town of Griddle Creek is celebrating Comic Book Day.
What to do: Stop into your favorite local bookstore and purchase a comic book. Go online and order a comic book or subscribe to a webcomic. The comic book options are practically endless. Pick one of your favorites or take a chance and discover something new.
Where to do it: Any and everywhere. On the bus or train on the way to work. On your lunch break. In the breakroom. Take time today to enjoy a comic book.
Inside tip: For comic book recommendations don’t be afraid to ask DeCaffe, she has been collecting them for years. Just don’t ask her while she is in the middle of reading one.
It has been a full week and Fluffy is still camped outside of the bookstore. He is still determined to be first in line for the Griddle Creek book release this week. He thought the line would be longer. Either way, he is ahead of those slackers who plan on showing up at the last minute. Camping is fun but he is definitely ready to go home and sleep in his own bed. Fluffy’s list of things to do in the morning reads as follows:
• Buy the book.
• Take a shower.
• See a chiropractor.
For those that enjoy exercising in the crisp air Griddle Creek is the place to be. You will feel a world away with the mountains as your backdrop. There are also a lot of community events taking place around town.
What to do: It is a perfect day to head out to Funfetti Field and toss around the football. You do not need to put on helmets, cleats, or shoulder pads to have some fun. Grab your play clothes and head out onto the field.
Where to do it: Funfetti Field is a popular spot for residents of Griddle Creek, especially during this time of year. Start your own game or just watch several of the games already going on. Sonny starts doing jumping jacks to warm up on the 30-yard line. Fluffy starts doing body stretches. Christie looks at them both while giving them the hardest eye roll. It is not a professional game, all of this just to throw the ball around? None of this is going to make them play any better either. They play on the field for fun but those two are dedicated to their full warm up routines like they were professional players in a playoff game. Christie plays quarterback because she has the best arm. Sonny and Fluffy take turns playing wide receiver and cornerback. After several dropped passes, Sonny is determined to catch the next one. The pass is up, a perfect spiral, and it is right on target. Sonny aka butterfingers is determined to make the catch this time. Wait, oh no, it is intercepted!
Insider Tip: If you display any kind of athletic prowess on Funfetti Field, Sonny may ask you to join his flag football team. We suggest you politely decline, he is a sore loser. The grass is green, the air is crisp, and you will have a great time whether you play on his team or against it.
