Gerald The Accountant
By Grant Baciocco

Gerald hated being indoors and he hated anything that kept him separated from the blue skies, the green trees, the fresh air.

In general, right now, it was his job keeping him from being outdoors.  He was an accountant and accounting was one of the jobs that, more or less, kept you indoors.  He would not be able to  go outside until the last penny was accounted for and that would be, by his estimation, about three hours from now.

More immediately, the window by his desk was what was keeping him from his beloved outside.  Gerald hated that window.

Chapin Avenue, 10:56 a.m. Wednesday Someone spit on an office window. No permanent damage was reported.
