Park Talk

Mrs. Myrtle Standich rendezvoused with her brother, Mr. Elliot Doyle, for a scheduled noon meeting. The site was a bench in Culver Creek Park. They met with standard familial greeting, a hello and hug. The greeting was followed by a hundred dollar loan request from Mr. Elliot Doyle to Mrs. Myrtle Standich. Mrs. Myrtle Standich denied, citing Mr. Elliot Doyle's frequent drug and alcohol abuse and a penchant for disappearing immediately after the occurence of an unsolved crime without contact with
family. Twenty minutes of uncomfortable silence immediately followed. The rest of their time together was spent observing the squirrels and talking of the temperature. Then the standard familial sendoff, a goodbye and hug.
