this was the perfect time to read this l’il short—the day after i read this post about mushroom horror, which is fast becoming a thing. my favorite kind of horror is natural rather than supernatural—animal attacks, extreme weather, parasites, etc, so bring on the mushrooms, horror-creators!
this one isn’t really horror-horror, but if it were happening to me, i’d sure be horrified (which is true for me and any number of non-horror stories: why do i have a kid? why do i live in texas?* holy shit, why do i have to put on so many petticoats? etc.)
anyway, it’s a fine story about a possible future for the evolution of our species, and it was gratifyingly short—your girl’s on a fast-approaching deadline and is freaking out about that more than the possibility of becoming a mushroom-person. back to work for meeeee! ♥
read it for yourself here:
* i am not messing with you, texas, but my body cannot function in temperatures over 60 degrees, so living there would destroy me.
