When they awoke on Sunday morning they found the sun had disappeared having been fed overnight to the hypnotists.

Expectant fear peppered their breakfast sausages as the smell of Auschwitz permeated their lavatories. Stories of the unborn became relics, country club names and golden trophies.

Knowing hundreds of landings were left they alphabetized their bites, memorialized their pounds and landmarked at Wrigley Field.

With reckless abandon on Sunday evening their fireworks become aviators as they ran home.
