Cover for Drabblecast episode 183, Angel of the Ordinary, by Dominick Rabrun“They will come on bicycles and by balloon, they will arrive in mailboxes and packages of cake batter.

Cover for Drabblecast episode 177, Floaters, by Skeet ScienskiThat’s when I saw it.

In this episode’s Drabble, a moth eloquently expresses her attraction to a bright light and her own subsequent destruction. The feature story, The Wicked Witch Looks at 40 (Decades), follows Winnie the witch through her (long overdue) midlife crisis. After a particularly discouraging Halloween, where not a single child is captured, she takes the advice of an article in Martha Stewart Living magazine, changing her house and her lifestyle.
