I’d been working hard these past few weeks. Too hard, in my humble opinion. Thanks to a series of unfortunate events, I was in effect doing three separate jobs at my office for the price of two. I wanted a break.
I’d stopped by the mall on the way home from work and had bought this weird medallion from this lady who had set up a jewelry stand in the middle of the walkway. She said it would held me with what I really wanted more then anything else right now. I always disliked delayed gratification so I agreed. She said to put it around my neck when I went to bed.
When I woke up the next morning everything felt really weird. Then I had a chance to look in the mirror. Now I know why. Hell, at least I get a break.
