On the plus side, the guy driving the removal van was also a promoter for circus performers and had been a clown for years. Neat. I wish I’d asked: ‘What kind of clown operation is this?’ I’m sure he’d have had a fantastic answer that involved a thrown bucket of confetti with a brick in the bottom…
As for the games, well, par-for-the-course, there’s a few(1) things going on at once, and I’m furiously learning about what the iOS doo-dads are all about (iPhones, iPads, etc.)

PS: Next up on ‘Black Door’ — ‘The Wake’.
