It’s a modern-day romantic tragedy… Romeo Finkleburger was at the county fair when he first met eyes with Juliet Sporkatelli. He was a young and successful pharmaceutical salesman. She was a Ph.D. student is ornamental horticulture and part-time bookkeeper. It was love at first ring toss (that’s where the saying comes from). Romeo won a stuffed chinchilla and gave it to Juliet. She named it “Chrysanthemum” after Saint Chrysanthus, the 3rd century martyr who was also credited with inventing the very first WeedWacker before being buried alive in a deep pit. It was a whirlwind romance. They ate funnel cakes, cotton candy and churros—then split a pack of heart-shaped antacids together. Unbeknownst to the young lovers, the Finkleburger and Sporkatelli families were bitter enemies. And then Juliet’s cousin got into a fight with Romeo’s best friend at the fair and stuck him with the sharp end of a corndog stick. Before leaving the fair, Romeo asked Juliet for her address and vowed to pick her up at midnight so they could run away together. Juliet whole-heartedly agreed and texted Romeo her address. They kissed good-bye, their passion mingling with the sweet yet greasy slick of funnel cake residue.
The Sporkatelli’s lived a rural part of town with no streetlights. As the midnight hour approached Romeo drove down her street in his Prius with the headlights off so as not to draw attention to himself and wake Mr. and Mrs. Sporkatelli. He strained hard to see the street numbers on the houses. Juliet waited in her livingroom peaking out through the curtains waiting for Romeo to arrive. Her heart skipped a beat as she made out the faint silhouette of the approaching hybrid vehicle. From Romeo’s vantage point, he couldn’t see squat. Not being able to see the address, he drove right past Juliet’s home, then through a construction barrier and down a 100-ft. cliff into the wash. Romeo and his Prius were never seen again.
