Hey there, thanks for this! Nauti Spirits in Cape May NJ is another distillery to add to the list:
My gym is practically empty and everyone is keeping away from everyone else. And it’s also practically silent (in terms of chit chat, anyway), which is kind of eerie.
That is rock-solid advice. Cheers to your mom--she sounds awesome!
NOOOOOOOO. Oh dude I am so sorry.
For an exceptional example of a terrifying mummy, read John Langan’s longish short story “On Skua Island” from his collection “Mr. Gaunt and Other Uneasy Encounters.” It’s nightmare fuel, and while the ending is perfect, it’s--it’s not happy.
Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry your family went through that with your grandmother. I’m amazed that, under those circumstances, your mom (and mine, as well) were such great moms.
I used to HATE it when my mom was right (which was usually, TBH). Until I smartened up and realized I was getting solid-gold therapy for the low low price of a smooch and a “Thanks, Mom.”
