Barkeater Lake by Corey Pandolph for February 02, 2023
Delores: Poison Ivy?! Are you sure?! Chuck: Positive... It's been on that hill for years. Chuck: You should go to the hospital. Delores: Why didn't you tell me about this when I bought the house?! Chuck: I can't remember everything. At least I told you not to drink the water. Delores: No you didn't!! Chuck: Oh. You'll wanna mention possible lead poisoning as well, then.
Chuck’s been over there making and drinking coffee several mornings. Those old pipes have scaled-over years ago sealing any lead away from the water anyway.
