Wolfe’s Woofer: Scary Sounds


We took a break from shooting pool and Mario called, “Hey, Juney! Come have a drink.”
When Juney Cho sat down with us Mario asked, “Where you been, man? We ain’t seen you in months.”
“I been hiding out,” Juney said.

“I’ve heard scarier,” Juney said. “How about you, Mr. Dennis?”
“I once heard an airplane crash right outside my house. The sound was awful.”
