The most confusing thing about this week's dig at the Jolene Avenue Graveyard was the hallucinations. Wooeeee what a doozy! Luckily the Dig Director had her anti-centipede venom, or who knows how long they could have gone on.
The last thing me and @Melody Quinn
remember is climbing off the ladder at the bottom of the hole and walking for a ways with our phone lights. You're not supposed to bring your phones on the dig as a precaution against picture taking but they got lax about searching us.
Anyway the centipedes must have been getting us the whole way in but they were those centipedes with arms and feelers like soft hair and we never felt the bites. But we're pretty sure (and Dig Director assures us) that the Centipede King (or Carlos as they called him) towering in his throne, sitting up like a cobra and undulating back and forth as he sang that weird poem must have been a hallucination. From all the bites. And then the vast cavern around us roared in ecstasy as the center of the portal opened up.
Next thing we know we're laying on the grass in the Jolene Avenue Graveyard and Dig Director says she administered the anti-venom and do we feel better and sign these papers and we're back in the van with warm bottles of water they gave to us.
All in all, totally still worth the credits. What's a few bug bites? Don't know why they didn't keep @Dara Boman
Psychic archeology sure is mysterious. @Melody Quinn
and @Dara Boman
and I landed at the Jolene Avenue Graveyard and the Dig Director (she still won’t tell us her name) did our shovel check (had ‘em!) and our glove check (didn’t!) and then used her dowsing rods to point us to a place right in the middle of all the holes we dug last time.
Right away we hit something. It was like a manhole but bigger was covered with many strange inscriptions. SEE? Psychic archeology. I wanted to take a picture for class but Dig Director says no photos.
Anyway we pried it open and do you know what’s under Psychic Archeology manholes? Holes! Or at least one very deep dark hole. There was a ladder and none of us really wanted to go down in it but @Melody Quinn
and I thought @Dara Boman
was the best candidate, because of bug repellency. Did I mention the centipede issue?
So @Dara Boman
went down the hole and @Melody Quinn
and I spent a long time not talking (because Dig Director) until Dig Director called the van and said it was time for us to go.
Does this mean @Dara Boman
gets overtime? I wanted to ask but I haven’t seen them at school since. Maybe when we go back!
Can you keep bugs away from other people too, @Dara Boman
? You might be a perfect candidate for the Dig Team! @Melody Quinn
and I got eaten alive digging those holes at the Jolene Avenue Graveyard, but we’re headed back tomorrow and could really use your help. Plus, free credits! Free money! Definitely room for a bug repeller. Meet at the parking lot by the gym at 11am.
Hope you work for centipedes too!
and I spent some time at our new great part-time completely unsuspicious job and I guess it must not be suspicious because psychic archeology.
The Dig Director directed us all around the Jolene Avenue Graveyard, pointing her dowsing rods around and shhhshing us when we talked. She pointed them here and pointed them there and pointed at the ground for us to dig our tiny holes.
We were glad not to have to dig the big holes because that must be hard work! There were lots of big holes that had gotten dug recently and then filled in and you had to be careful not to trip over them or the headstones when we walked. And holding our breath! You have to hold your breath when you walk between the spots which helps with the not talking.
Anyway we dug a bunch of tiny holes all over and they must have liked our work because they want us back! Maybe next time we put things in the holes? It’s all very hush hush. I guess they could still use more bodies though. You should sign up!
Hey so @Melody Quinn
and I went to the parking lot out by the gym today to try and find the vans and get a ride with @Francesca Lemon
to the Jolene Avenue Graveyard field trip and maybe earn some extra money and get credits for psychic archeology class but there was nobody there. If you are closed Friday through Monday why is the job on Saturdays? Is Francesca already working for you? Do you want to see how long we can hold our breath? Ready? 1... 2... 3..........
I’m a Silence Major.
whoops. I did it again.
