Concord Insider's Ben Conant and Keith Testa (SAMANTHA GORESH / Monitor staff)

Listen close, Concord, because we are about to really open up and dish the juicy details about our life.

We’ve never told anyone this before, but we were born with a moustache and the ability to talk to animals. One day, we were hanging out in a cave and we met a cougar (think National Geographic cougar, not late night at Tandy’s cougar) who became our constant companion. We met up with the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier who tasked us to locate a magical peace pipe that had the power to stop all wars, maaaan.

That set us off on a fantastic journey full of adventure, misadventure, laughs, chills, thrills, planes, trains and automobiles. Come to think of it, maybe the peace pipe thing came first and the rest of it was our imagination. Regardless, someone got word of our tale to author Henry Homeyer – and he turned it into a children’s book! Homeyer will read from and discuss his book Wobar and the Quest for the Magical Calumet at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Gibson’s Bookstore, 27 S. Main St. This should be a great family event (or at the very least, a chance to get the kids out of the house for a little while. February vacation is a vacation in name only for the parenting set!).
