One Eerie Night

Prompt : Hate It

hate it… When things don’t explode as I walk away… When saucy dogs hump other people’s legs… When molotov cocktails don’t break on the first throw… When theme music doesn’t play as I enter the vicinity… When being ordained an e-minister doesn’t strike fear in the hearts of children… When I buy a lab coat and…

A Letter to You Fickle Earthlings

Dear Humans, Sincerest apologies for our complete lack of correspondence lately. In our defense, the exponential increase in your defenses, angry approach to existential questions, self destructive natures, and general weirdness kinda warranted the absence.
