I received another missive from my Bixby correspondent. It turns out that she actually lives in Glenpool, which is just west of Bixby. But she does go to Bixby High (in fact, she has an @bixbyps.org address, which means she’s either telling the truth or really taking this hoax seriously). She hasn’t been able to read this blog yet, because the school software blocks all blogs everywhere. Probably so they don’t find out about the zombies under the school.
Her quote of the day: “The water DOES taste funny in Bixby.”
Of course, I bet all Glenpoolians say that.
She’s going to tell a bunch of other Bixby-ites this week about the Midnighters books. We’ll see if any of them join us here . . .
This reminds me, the Midnighters fan who spent spring break in Oklahoma sent me a Bixby Spartans t-shirt:
It’s a pretty cool shirt, actually. (Thanks, Morgan!) Although in Touching Darkness, I say that the BHS football team is called the “Tigers.” Oops. Note to self: Do some research, sometime.
Of course, if the real Bixby had darkling panthers sneaking around at night, they might have thought “Tigers” made more sense.
