    Which one of Jackson’s?
    It's her one volume Novels and Stories. I'm rereading The Haunting of Hill House for the first time since America's bicentennial. I don't care for most of her stuff, but The Lottery is pure genius and one I always enjoyed sharing with my Literature students (along with David Macauley's "BAAA").

    1)At 4:50 AM, the cats started a fur-pulling contest in the dining room. There was lots of hissing and growling.

    2)I parked in the grocery store's lot and thumbed the door lock button on Miss Mehetabel's key fob. Immediately, four other cars went into PANIC MODE.

    3)Played a dinner concert for a group of friends.
