Evie Bloomfield here and it’s been a great summer on Mackinac Island...if you don’t mind a dead body or two.
The first thing about our body is that no one’s passing the crying towel that’s for sure, but that’s not the problem. The problem is that a dead body scares off the tourists!
If there’s one thing all of us here on the island do not want to happen is that! Our little island that’s a time-warp back to the 1800s rely on the tourists who we call fudges.
So the thing is where can we get rid of that pesky old body? I have a few suggestions and you can tell me which one appeals to you. Keep in mind all of these suggestions require strapping the body to a bike or renting a horse and buggy.
First we can hide the body in Arch Rock. There’re enough bushes there to hide the corpse and it’ll be like they just fell off the rocks. Splat!
Or we shove the body back in Skull Cave. That place sounds a lot scarier then it is and the cave is too small. Then again maybe the fudgies will think it’s part of the attraction.
There’s Fort Mackinac. I saw a pit where they put the bad guys. Maybe we can dump the body in there...till it started to stink.
Saint Ann’s Cemetery is a good choice, a body just fits right in. What’s one more dead guy more or less.
The Grand Hotel might work. Just prop
the body up in one of those rocking chairs on that really looooong front porch they have. Be part of the Halloween décor.
Or just push the body off the East Bluff and into Lake Huron. Weight it down with some rocks. Glug, glug, glug.
Or just push the body off Shepler’s dock or off the ferry on the ride back to the mainland.
Where would you get rid of the body? Mackinac Island is a great place for more than eating fudge. Some people have a drop-dead good time.
I’ll give away 2 Geared for the Grave totes from your suggestions…we really need to get rid of this body!
