Time to Move

by Joel Heffner

The neighbors were getting curious. Mr. and Mrs. Killington, a friendly octogenarian couple, recently rented a house on the block. For some reason, they have put out more garbage than anyone else on the block every week since they moved in. When Mrs. Yentman asked about it, Mrs. Killington said, "Oh, we have so many bodies to get rid of." They both giggled. When she got back into the house, Mrs. Killington told Mr. Killington, "Dear, I think it's time to move along, the neighbors are getting curious.”
