Jekyll and Hyde
Try as he might, nothing could thwart his darker side. Charming millions of children by day, Barney inflicted terror after sundown . (133)

Cramped Inside
“I smell Big Macs.”

“Okay, Bob, but we’re using the drive thru this time. I can’t afford to pay for more broken booths.” (120)

Hitchin’ A Ride
Eight hours with thumbs up and still no ride. Rex bravely held his pose, but Yoshi started whimpering about hand cramps. (122)

    Hitchin’ A Ride was my fave, especially with the video–it transported me back in time! Of course, I always like your rhyming titles. Thanks for the chuckles.
