Not sure. Is that MaTTy Evil, or MaDDy Evil [thinks: there's always a new series I haven't heard of...]
Just Mattyevil, Miss.
[Aha! moment] Medieval? Middle Ages?
I establish that he's after stories, not nonfiction, and he totters happily off for the holidays with a pile of good looking prospects.
I sit down again at my desk, laugh at myself and KNOW it's time for a holiday!!!
