Cause for Pause



Here I am; standing in front of this human who just keeps gawking at me like an ostrich.

She doesn’t even blink. Doesn’t move a muscle.

She just stands there, impeccably still, staring back as if she’s been frozen in time.

I examine her more closely, making sure my eyes aren’t deceiving me.

You’ve got to be fucking kidding…

Just moments ago, everything was perfectly normal. I’d been minding my own business in the final hours of a typical work week; gruesome and exhausting, filled with the promise of countless tasks and unending responsibilities that would have bored me to death…if I wasn’t already.
