“Habas rawap sinso wertgu entu tyrk opinaga penadse,? Tobias said as pumped the pony keg and handed Jeff a draft beer.

“Dude, will you cut that crap out? If you aren’t careful, the whole Ball State campus will be crawling with shadow wraiths. Those things are even worse than the campus police! Speaking of demons, you haven’t seen Susan have you?”

“Nope,” Tobias said, shrugging his shoulders.

“You really got an attitude, don’t you. No wonder the villagers hate you. Hey, I heard that David Letterman is partying over at the Sigma Chi house. Wanna check it out ?”

“Habas rawap-”

“Stop it,” Jeff said, rolling his eyes. “Hey, how much money we made so far?”

“Billions,” Tobias said, giving his best Dr. Evil impersonation.

“Really, how much have we made?” Jeff asked.

“sinso wertgo-”

“Shh!”

“entu tyrk-”

“Zip it!”

“opinaga pinadse-”

“What did you call me?”

“Habas-”

“Shh! Shh-Shh. Shh-Shhhhhh-Shh. Shh-shh!

    My brother’s going to Ball State next year. I’m so proud! ....sniff.

  • from Kermitgorf:

    My cousin use to be an anthropology prof. at Ball st.

  • from YodaOnCrack:

    Really, Stovohobo – very interesting… I was just there last week. My wife & I both went to Ball State. My neice had an art show at the new Communications & Media building. I’d never seen it before & it was just named after David Letterman. Guess those random thoughts played into this ficlet entry… I live in Northern Indiana now, but frequently travel down that way.

  • from YodaOnCrack:

    Kermitgorf – another Ball State connection… Small world, isn’t it. I took an anthropology class way back when. I even remember the lecture on the primitive Yanomami tribes in South America. Maybe a topic for a future ficlet?

  • from Lone Writer:

    Very Nice, Y.O.C. But Tobias isn’t my character. He’s Distant Rose’s who just happens to be a friend of mine. But 5 stars anyway!

  • from YodaOnCrack:

    Yeah, I know – hope you don’t mind. I didn’t realize the mistake ‘till after I wrote this… I grabbed that feed from your notes section, thinking it was yours…

  • from Lone Writer:

    It’s fine. I really liked it.

  • from Lone Writer:

    ....the whole Ball State campus will be crawling with shadow wraiths.
    That wouldn’t be possible, there can only be ons Shadow Wraith at a time. The spell Tobias read would cause the place to be filled with Shadows not Shadow Wraiths.
    Just F.Y.I.
