Here’s a teaser with Craig shopping at the drugstore, deciding to pull a funny on an unsuspecting clerk:
“Can I help you find something?”
Craig raised his head, looking at the young stock clerk standing next to him wearing an eager grin.
“Well, yes, I was wondering about these cleanses, could you help me pick one?”
“Sure, I just need to know how long you want it to take and if you’d rather have juice or water, the water ones are best if you really want a good cleanse, though.”
Craig thought for a moment. “Well, let’s see, I need it to work by Friday morning, and I definitely need a good cleanse.” The clerk picked out a box.
“This one would be good. You can start on it this evening, and by Friday morning, you’ll be clean as a whistle. You can even eat protein and vegetables, but no gluten.” He gave it to Craig, smiling. “Why do you need a cleanse, may I ask? Diet, turning vegan?” Craig decided to have some fun.
“I’m bonding with a vampire, and my sire wants me to be clean.”
The clerk backed away with a wide fake smile on his face, shaking his head. “Umm, have fun with that, then,” he murmured, the smile still in place. He disappeared down the nearest aisle. Craig shook his head, laughing, as he headed for the registers.
“Yup, Carl was right, nobody believes you when you tell the truth.”
