One of Ward’s students invited him to a guy’s movie night on the weekend. Ward has been to this student’s house quite a few times before, but that night I received a call from him, asking me to look up the student’s address in his records.
So I did. And then I asked, “Did you forget where he lives?”
And he said, “No, I remembered. I’m there right now.”
And I said, “Why, is the house not there anymore?”
The thing is, I said this in all seriousness. It was the first thing that popped into my mind.
Yes, it’s true. My first thought was that the house must have disappeared. Into thin air.
I didn’t even see the weirdness of this. My husband laughed when I said it. I think he thought I was joking.
But I wasn’t.
So there you go. Now you know I’m a big fantasy reader.
