I liked to imagine, every now and then, that things weren't as far gone as they seemed to be. I liked to pretend that, anytime I wanted, I could just turn around and there they'd be. All those emotions, walking along behind me at a respectful distance. Waiting and hoping for me to stop, and turn, and beckon them back. To my side, where they belonged.
Well, today I turned around. Whether out of boredom or curiosity or desperation, I don't know. But I turned around, and behind me there was nothing. Just this same old gray plain.
So, that was a stupid thing to do. Because now I know that which I'd only suspected before.
I'm on my own now.
Unless, they're just playing a trick on me. Unless they've snuck up ahead, and are even now lying in wait. Ready to pounce out at me when I least expect it. When I most need it.
I think that would be nice. I don't like it here by myself.
I tell you what, if they did that, I'd never turn my back on them again.
A thought just jumped into my head. An old thought that I never turned into a blog entry, because it was stupid.
A > B+C+D+E+F+G+H+I+J+K+L+M+N+O+P+Q+R+S+T+U+V+W+X+Y+Z
Maybe a little cryptic, but my readers are, by definition almost, smart people. So okay, smart people, I have a question.
What happens when A equals 0?
