We’re almost at the end of Avalon, S.C. Only five chapters to go (and four of them happen on Beltane)! By next Friday (Oct 4th), I’ll have posted it all.
You’ve by and large stopped commenting, which I’m going to assume is because you are so caught up in the story that you can’t think of anything else to add.
So . . . you going to a Beltane party. As George put it in his journal, Beltane is basically an orgy with religious overtones. You definitely don’t want to get out to the island and realize that you’ve forgotten something critical. Maybe we should prepare a checklist of what to take.
Girlfriend’s panties (apparently don’t need those)
___ Boss, but DON’T confuse with girlfriend
___ Paper and pencil to be able to talk to boss’s dad, if needed
Sexy new age consultant (sorry, Chai. Maybe next year)
___ Girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. Seems like a strange thing to take to the party, but apparently “we” have a plan. Maybe he’s a gift, since he’s so nicely wrapped up in duct tape.
___ Taser, in case of emergency with duct tape.
Thermos of Martinis (nope, we’re going to risk the Beltane punch, although that might turn out to be a really, really bad idea. Particularly considering how Mr. Lust still has a thing for the boss)
___ Alarm clock? Don’t want to oversleep and end up staying on the island!
Camera? Apparently no reason to take a camera; the pictures somehow refuse to turn out. I guess what happens on the island stays on the island.
___ Camping essentials: flashlight, matches (although it’s hard to believe we’ll need those), toothbrush, blanket.
Anything I’ve forgotten?
___ Condoms. Like I said, don’t want to forget something critical.
