25. The Wizard is Ill (Time Management)

Norm's got a problem. His band finally has its first paying gig and they have to practice. But next weekend is a traditional weekend away for Norm and his dad to go fishing. Norm doesn't know what to say to his father and, frankly, he's almost sick about that. Exhausted from all the worry, he falls asleep into the dream world of Nilus the Sandman, where it's poison pincher crab country and if you're not a crab, you're not welcome. Here, when Norm commits to help both an ailing raptor as well as a group of cuddly aliens, he may have put all of them in even greater danger than before. With conflicting needs, time ticking away and thousands of crabs moving in, a horrible fate could be all but sealed. Awaking from all of this, Norm realizes he has to tell his dad about his conflict. In the end his father has a great solution: the whole band can go on the trip, and he and Norm can fish after they practice. 05/08DE PI 30 min.
