I found Tip in the kitchen behind the refrigerator. I don’t know how he got there and I don’t remember having him before then. He’s the handle of a vintage bottle opener. He’ll open bottles that aren’t vintage, too. He appears to be holding a beer mug and growler for Oktoberfest. I think he’s had too many bottles. He looks tipsy.

A ghostly Wildwolf haunts Johnson’s Duckpin Lanes in Hamden, CT in a spirited one-piece werewolf ensemble.
Wildwolf shows that if you’re going to be an apparition, you can do better than manifesting in a plain sheet. Unless you’re Mr. Boo. He can look good in any linen.

It sounds like the name of a male dancer, but it’s really the negative charge clamp for my car’s battery. Tricks of the ambient light make the greenish areas look like they’re radioactive and glowing, and the forward bolt look three-dimensional.
