Going to My Happy Place
This is my version of a genius list Zan did a few days ago, entitled “Things I sometimes imagine against my will.”
-Feeling someone’s breath on my ear, and looking up in the bathroom mirror to see a ghost behind me.
-Being pushed onto the subway tracks by an insane person.
-Dead people sleeping in the basement, until they hear me descending the stairs, whereupon they scuttle to their hiding places.
-A hand shooting out from underneath my parked car (my bed, a low table, the basement crawl space) to grab my ankle.
-The hand grabbing my ankle is attached to a dismembered arm.
-Prison guards pulling Hank from my arms while he yells my name.
-Having one of those surgeries where they think the anesthesia is working, but it isn’t.
-It turns out the robots want to enslave us.
