“Best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry…” Robert Burns
Fifty-four-year-old Benny had been janitor in the old Watcalf Building for thirty-six years. No job; can’t retire. He knows this place; it has all the necessities for home – even a food closet stocked for temporary shelter for weather victims. He can even get wi-fi and news channel by hooking up next door. And people? He’s had enough for a lifetime! Smiling, he hears the contractors seal all doors and windows. Superb retirement plan!
Thirteen days later, he hears a voice:
“Where did boss say to install these dynamite sticks?”
