- The Enthusiast • Principal O’Rear isn’t pleased when Coach Devon picks Yūta to be on the track team. “He wasn’t the fastest. Parents are calling and complaining,” Principal O’Rear yells at him. Coach Devon points out, “No he wasn’t the fastest, but he was the most enthusiastic of the lot, Paul.” And Coach Devon knows that enthusiasm is everything.
- The Dubinski Brothers • Marshall’s muscles are all knotted up from stress at work. His boss slips him a business card. “Home Massage by the Dubinski Brothers,” the card says. “I use them from time to time,” his boss says. “Trust me, you won’t regret calling them.” Is that true? If Marshall has these brothers over to massage his muscles, will be find relief? Read DBTN 304 to find out.
- Fill ’Er Up • A friend of a friend of his dad gets Luke a job at Joe’s Gas ’n Go. Luke’s a bit annoyed that he was to wear a hand-me-down uniform with someone else’s name on it. But his cigar chomping boss, Joe, tells him, “Go with it, kid. You’ll thank me later. Sometimes it works out better if customers don’t know your real name.” But why would it matter?
- Run It Up the Flagpole and See Who Salutes • James has not seen another human in nearly two weeks. He’s manning a fire lookout tower in the Thunder Mountain Wilderness. So when he spots two attractive hikers on another ridge, advice his grandpa often gave, “Run It Up the flagpole and see who salutes,” gives him an idea. He doesn’t have a flag, but he does have a bright, yellow jockstrap. He ties it to the top of a tall antenna. Will it work?
