Your Mid-Week Update for 12/18/19

Ladies and gentlemen, the season is upon us. My favourite time of year. The season I look forward to all year long.

Burying bodies in the snow.

For all it’s faults, I thank my lucky stars every day that I live in a city that gets below freezing on a regular basis for months on end and snows like our economy doesn’t depend on it.

It wasn’t a deciding factor for the move, but this new place is also very cold and snowy.

All that potential. All that destroyed evidence.

I’ve been showing Casey all the great things that snow can do to a body – living or dead. In keeping with some past weeks’ themes, I’ve planted a tree in a forest using a body as a base through which the roots will weave. Even if that corpse ever resurfaces, it will be too badly damaged and I will be long gone.

I ran the night man at a local hockey rink (low-fi, no security to speak of) over with his own Zamboni and made it look like he fell off and it was a freak accident. Weirdly messy. And that thing can speed up.

Then I drugged a man unconscious then turned him into a snowman. He froze to death before he ever woke up. Then I carved a few simples with blood from his palm and made it look like I was emulating the movie The Snowman.

Okay, so I’ve never seen Snowman (the snowman?) but I got the gist of it.

The funnest part about that one was building the snowballs with Casey. It’s something I never thought I would get to share with one of my children. Jason would have nothing to do with it and Sandra…

Sandra was gone before the first snow fell.

So now I have Casey to share these things with and it’s not quite the same but it is really nice. Having her around has been really nice.

I wish I knew more about her. Where she came from. Who her mother was. James doesn’t know a lot and I haven’t dared press her about it. Losing all that family must have been like…

An unhappy beginning.

That poor girl. I’m so glad to see she’s handling it in a healthy way.

I haven’t decided if you will get an update next week seeing as it’s Christmas Day but we’ll see. Maybe a ‘not-so Mid-Week update’?

All my love to you and yours this year.

As always, dear readers,

Stay Safe
