Welcome to the ceaseless torture of adulthood! We're glad you made it!

take a bucket and fill it with water
stick your hand in it up to the wrist
take it out, and the hole that's remaining
is the measure of how you'll be missed.

There's this dream, see.

I'm walking along the sidewalk with a bunch of friends. I disappear. Kind of phase out in a haze of pixels, like Mary Henry in Carnival of Souls. I can see and hear the friends, but they can't see or hear me.

I'm at a movie with a bunch of people. Poof. I'm gone! But I can still watch the movie! Which is good!

This keeps happening. I'm in a meeting discussing Bathtub Devils. I disappear like milk in a cat dish.

The annoying thing is that people keep right on chatting, switching gears in such a way that it edits out everything I might've said. Meetings roll right along. Somebody passes a box popcorn directly through where I used to sit.

This really pisses me off.

I'm thinking, "It's bad enough I keep going up in smoke. "But nobody even blinks."
