What Should They Do With St. Mary’s?
It's the end of era as the last of Blessing's staff moves out of the old St. Mary's building on Broadway. It's scheduled for demolition, with full details of what's being done with the property next month. I think we should keep the building, do a little remodeling, and make it into something cool. Here are some options.
1 - Apartments
Is it a little creepy to turn an old hospital to apartments? Maybe. But the infrastructure is already there for it, just move a few things around, knock out a few walls, and you're good to go. I call dibs on the morgue as my apartment, because I'm a Halloween loving weirdo like that. If it turns out to be haunted, we'll just fit it with iron and salt, and put some wards and symbols on the drywall. I've seen every episode of Supernatural, I know how to get rid of ghosts. That won't be a problem. Speaking of ghosts...
2 - Haunted House
Before we do all the apartment retro-fitting, let's turn it into a kickass haunted house for October. What's that, like seven stories? Eight? That would be an epic haunted house.
3 - Entertainment Plaza
With however many stories it has, each floor could be something fun! The bottom two could be combined to make an ice rink, then some bowling lanes, a full arcade, and then some indoor lazer tag and paintball up top. A big fun thing right in the middle of town? Keeps the kids out of trouble, anyway.
4 - A Friggin' 8 Story Chick-Fil-A
BECAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU PEOPLE WANT ANYWAY! EVERY TIME WE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, IT'S JUST CHICK-FIL-A THIS AND CHICK-FIL-A THAT! THEIR CHICKEN ISN'T EVEN THAT GOOD! THE ONLY THING THEY HAVE GOING FOR THEM IS THEIR BISCUITS, AND POPEYE'S IS BETTER AND YOU KNOW IT!
5 - Prank Future Archaeologists
Seriously, let's just put a bunch of weird, random crap in there, so in a few hundred years, when 31st century Indiana Jones is digging around in the now ancient ruins of the mighty Quincy civilization, he spends most of his time going, "WTF?! I don't understand these people at all."
