Article Title



I decided to go as a knight to John Diefendorf’s party. I cut up a piece of cardboard and spray-painted it silver for the shield. I made a lance out of cardboard paper towel rolls. “Very authentic,” said my wife, Betsy. She surveyed the kitchen. “You really did a number in here.” I had spread sheets of newspaper on the floor by the pantry, and various strips of cardboard were scattered on or around the newspaper.
