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.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
