I got the word today, of all days, on Mandy’s birthday. It sucked the air right out of my lungs and clamped my brain in a spinning vise right before the party started.
Daniel called. “The Esperanza’s gone silent,” was all he said.That's it. The opening lines of The Freezer. I'm eager to write this one. Starting tomorrow.
In other news, my kids are up way past their bedtime and one of them is bawling because she can't find her panda.
