I'm Scared I Might Grow A Chrysalis

And I can't figure it out. I want to watch Hee Haw re-runs and eat lemon Jello. I want to wear my Slayer concert tee shirt with fuzzy bunny slippers. I want to eat shrimp puffs while downing tequila shots.

I'm in a mood.

But what I'm really afraid of is that it's a metamorphosis. I'll fall asleep and somehow grow a chrysalis.




Or like Gregor, awake to find myself a cockroach. What does a person feel like before taking on some hideous physical transformation? Do they crave Ho Ho's and tomato juice?

I guess I'm just not feeling like myself.

It doesn't help that where ever I go, people look at me like this:


Hold on while I consult the Magic Eight Ball to see how this will turn out. Hmmmmmmmmm. "Outlook not so good".

Not what I was hoping to hear. Seems strange things are afoot at the Circle K, I mean Chez Quinn. Let's hope it straightens itself out soon. But if you happen to look out your window and see something like this:



You may want to run too.

That prank could go horribly wrong. Funny how some people didn't react.
Maybe it's just a phase. Just party on, dude.

lmao that 2nd last guy looks like he got a wedgie.

Crystal Collier said...

=) That second guy's a good sprinter--especially considering that suit.

LOL. I say go for it. Indulge the mood. What's wrong with Slayer Ts, shrimp puffs, and tequila, anyway? ;)

I'm with Liz.

Also, the possibility of pranks like that is why I never leave my house. Unless I need chocolate.

Hmmm... I think this is all part of being a writer. Just go with it!

Maybe you're pregnant.
I know, I know. Bite my tongue. :P

Great prank. :D

Maybe you're transforming into something even more amazing than you already are. When people rush you, realize they are your adoring fans. :D

Okay, I'd totally freak if I saw a group of people running at me:)

Oh, see, this sounds familiar. Only for me, it's stretchy pants, sports bras, Cheetos and white wine (and sometimes freeze pops). I've never once woken up as a cockroach. I hope that's some comfort. ;)

Though you might not feel like yourself, your writing is funny and as always, pretty darn good.

I like to get up early to go out and breathe fresh air. I feel that it is good for health and a good habit
