Cat's Cradle Chapter 82 Summary
- Frank didn't appear for supper. Instead, he just called ahead, told them he was keeping vigil over "Papa," and insisted that John stay the night.
- John asks for a little tiny-tiny hint as to what's going on. Frank only says, "Zah-mah-ki-bo" (82.13).
- After Frank hangs up, John asks Julian what that means. The simple answer is fate.
- Of course, Frank could have just said fate, but whatever. Moving on.
