Ahh, city life.

Just now thought I heard a disturbance outside my window. Sounded like shouting or something.

Sure enough--way out in the middle of the park, a fellow in a dirty t-shirt, walking around, fidgeting with his arms, jumping up from a park bench, pacing, twirling, then slamming himself back down, screaming streams of curses at no one. Maybe two hundred feet away, through two panes of glass, and I can still hear him.

But it's a lovely day outside otherwise.

I'm sorry ... I thought something was chasing me.

Well, dernitall, next time don't keep sitting back down on the same bench--go over to the ones on the other side of the courthouse or something!

And please, watch your language. There are squirrels around, you know.

Think maybe it was an attack of the robopossums? Maybe with a cloak of invisibility that only the mentally different can see.

No, he wasn't looking up in the trees where the robopossums live. If there were such things as robopossums. Which there aren't.

I was thinking about that suicidal possum that reportedly dropped onto the woman's car & broke out the sunroof. Think about how much more exciting it would have been if the possum dropped through the sunroof and into the car- still alive, dazed frightened and trapped! That would have been an exciting moment in motoring history!

Even more exciting is a robopossum that could shove the driver out from behind the wheel and take over operation of the vehicle.

Not that such a thing is possible.

"Robopossum," indeed! It is to laugh.

He was probably upset because he couldn't remember where he'd left his aluminum foil hat.

Possibly. I might have to ask him. He was back out there bright and early this morning, screaming and carrying on again.
