Eventually we left the car behind and slid on our butts down a series of inter-connected marble tubes. Arriving at home we shampooed each other, in preparation for your meeting with the real-estate agent. I woke up, I had been dreaming, it was 2AM, I stumbled through the dark hallway, urinated in what I hope was the toilet, and promptly went back to bed to sleep for another five hours and forty five minutes. I woke again, this time I took a shower, sat in my room staring at the wall, made some coffee, ate some leftovers, came to my desk and started writing. I’m sitting here, up straight, perched on the front edge of my desk. I feel movement in my bowels.
