Told to me while we took shelter at the Starbucks near Roland Park Elementary in the dark and during a downpour.
"This is a SPOOKY story.
It was dark and raining.
A Blue Thing came into a cave. It was a monster.
A Red Thing came and said 'AAAAAAGH!': it was a human.
Then a Green Thing and Orange Thing came into the cave: they were monsters TOO.
Then the Red Thing ran out of the cave and went back home."
Me: "So, the moral of the story is to run away from monsters?"
Winton: "Yes, and then go home to bed."
