Spring City Man Crosses Road. Gets to Other Side

Funny story written by Jackson Hoff

Thursday, 23 April 2015

Charles "Chick" Engals, life long Spring City, PA native left his home last week after telling his wife that he would return, she said, in an hour or so.

After asking him where he was going, his response to her was, as always, that he was going to cross the street. Strangely, "Chick" had never successfully crossed the road. He has made countless failed attempts, assuring laughing on-lookers that he would succeed "next time".

Over the years, Mr. Engels has tried crossing using various scenarios, including: at dusk, with his dog; early morning with the newspaper guy; using a bicycle; on all fours; using a trampoline; wearing various disguises from the simple (mustache and glasses) to the more complex (Choral gown, top hat and inflatable monster feet); while eating cold beans from a can, all resulting in failure.

His most recent attempt, last week, was at last successful. Mr. Engels finally got to the other side. Ironically, he was only able to do it by tying some twine around a neighbor's chicken and following it across. Since then, though, Mr. Engels has struggled unsuccessfully to re-cross, stating that "this is even more harder getting back".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
