Life is Not a Book (More's the Pity)

Cross posted from A Wicked Convergence of Circumstance

There is something that happens in books and movies that generally does not happen in real life. (You know, aside from all the other things that happen in books that people generally believe can't happen in real life.) At least, it is not something that has ever happened to me.

People Say the Darndest Things

Cross posted from A Wicked Convergence of Circumstances.

...I'm possibly missing something here, which isn't too unusual. Someday someone will have to sit me down and explain why exactly people occasionally say the weirdest possible things to me. I have had people tell me that rats are apparently a larval stage of the bat. (Okay, actually they said that old rats turn into bats, but still.) I have had people claim vast psychic powers (who then failed to be able to read my mind, which is no surprise.) On occasion, I've suspected I give out a weird possibly supernatural vibe that inspires people to disturb me with things that make my head hurt.
