MerenwenAnaron: I went to a 99 cent store to buy an oaktag. While in the school supply section, I saw a bautiful silver gift box as big as my foot. I picked it up and opened it, eager to see what was inside. And there laid a second boxm smaller than the first and golden. I found it even more adorable and so I lifted the lid to see what was inside. I was greeted with a third box, even smaller than the last, and blue. I was slightly surprised, but curious nonetheless. Off came that lid. Inside was a fourth box, tiny and red. I was vexed and intriqued all at once, I had to open it. Perhapsit was a micrcosm of our universe. A series of tinnier and tinnier boxes that never depleted itself. Then I opened the red lid... The box was empty.
It was at this time that I realized some one had just played an insedious joke on me, for I had just wasted a minute of my insignificantly brief lifetime opening boxes.
I ended up getting some ice cream.
My family is slowly dying. All around me, I see nothing but withering old fat clumps of humanity, scrounging about and blindly bumping into each other and prattling on or shrieking about one thing or another...
