Welcome to the latest update of "Saturday" the book. We're on page 22, which makes it Saturday in the world of India McGreevy. Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 12:00 (mid-day).
At this point, the story goes a bit off the rails. See, before this, India and company (Fred and Elizabeth) had been doing some begrudging trudging through a quagmire of a week, often finding themselves knee-deep in frustration, boredom, and grouchiness.
But Saturday seems to have brought with it some easier walking. And not only is the walking easier, the territory they're walking through is getting curiouser and curiouser, as if the conductor of this story train is Rene Magritte.
