Going Bovine Chapter 20

Chapter 20

In Which We Visit a Cemetery and I Receive a Message. Sort of. I Hope.

  • The boys take the Canal Street car all the way to the end of the line, like the homeless guy told them to, only to find that there are three cemeteries there. Hrm… Which one to bury the glasses in?
  • Turns out one of them is called Cyprus Grove, just like the Junior Webster album. Guess this is the cemetery they're looking for.
  • While Gonzo is goofing around taking selfies with some German tourists, Cam has to figure out which angel he's supposed to bury the glasses under.
  • Dulcie shows up, and Cam figures she's as good an angel as any.
  • Nothing happens for a few minutes, so Cam gets up in a huff to storm away because of how stupid he feels. In his exit, though, he trips over a rock that is holding down a scrap of today's newspaper.
  • It's from the classifieds, and there's a bunch of seemingly random info on it—photos of the lost Copenhagen Interpretation band, an ad for Valhalla yard gnomes, someone offering a spot in their car on the way to the YA! Party House, and a hiring ad for United Snow Globe Wholesalers.
  • Down at the bottom of the page is a tiny illustrated ad for the Roadrunner Bus Company along with their tagline, follow the feather. The wind blows the paper from Cam's hands so he's just left holding a scrap with the words "to live" written on it. Deep stuff, yo.
