Nine - Selected Shorts

First: Matutinal


     Our ninth storyline isn't a storyline at all but rather a collection of individual snap-shots, little stand-alone pieces featuring our main cast. How fortuitous that we've got 5 main characters and 5 days of the week, huh?

     So this is Howlett in the morning. Oh, and for our non-American readers, let me point out that his heater/alarm clock is set for degrees Fahrenheit: it's designed to heat him up enough to wake him, not boil him. And now that we've seen how he gets his tie on in the morning, I find myself with another question: how's he get 'em back up on their little racks in the evening?

     But that's another mystery for another time. Next, Jolene.
