What’s Happening

Posted by Rankyn Phyle on 2015 Sep 13

For the last couple of days, I’ve been dreaming about my old comic book store.

Two nights ago I was dreaming about turning the garage on my mother’s house into a new store.
But it was being done in the style of all these "house flipping" shows I’ve been watching lately where they throw a graphic up on the screen with the cost of each improvement.
Framing: $1,500
Drywall: $900
Plate Glass Windows: $2,000
And so forth.

When it was all said and done, it was kind of a nice space.
But then I’d probably have to name the store something stupid like Krazy Kuntry Komix to attract the locals.

Then last night it was more like I had remodeled my original store.
I was putting the finishing touches on it because the building was still empty when the group of dwarves from The Hobbit comes in and wants to murder their leader and bury him behind my store.
I was ok with this as long as they didn’t mess up my new carpet.

A little while later as I’m digging around in the floor in the front part of my store (apparently the carpet was put down over dirt?), an old friend from high school comes in with a couple of dead celebrities (Cher and Elton John) and wants to know if I’ll chop them up and bury them under my store.
I calmly explain to him that they won’t both fit in the hole I’m digging so what we’ll do instead is put them in boxes and ship them to random addresses via UPS.

Maybe the fumes from all these boxes of old comic books stacked against my wall are starting to get to me, not unlike the way the trees attacked humanity in The Happening.
