The saga continues. I am halfway through What the #@&% is That?, which I only read in the daytime. Not all of the stories involve creepy ghosts—I’d say Those Gaddam Cookies was more extra-terrestrial—but I’m not taking any chances. (Never again. Not after that one creepy story I read.)
The other day, I read “Little Widow” by Maria Dahvana Headley. It’s about a girl and her sisters who used to be a part of a cult called “Heaven’s Avengers.” Unsurprisingly, there’s a creepy founder and weird rules involved, but because of the nature of the cult, its members are far from fragile. The sisters in the story even possessed a kind of wisdom.
“Little Widow” was particularly interesting for me to read because I watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. As I read the story, I noted which details were similar to the show and which were different. Comparing the two (yes, I know, they’re very different genres) allowed me to be slightly less creeped out by the story. I liked how it ended—the story, I mean.
