This is a twice weekly serialization of humour in the time of COVID, any COVID. The world hasn't changed...only our response to it.
Some people say life’s a path winding through a field of endless possibilities.
Well…we’ll see. In the meantime, Crazy Man and the dog, Sidestepper, will be following that path through the deep dark scary woods every Tuesday and Thursday until they get there or die. You’re welcome to follow them but, be warned, nothing good can come of this.
Yes, being an artist, I have much too much money, so I'm giving this away free. I'm also giving away other free stuff. Click the Weekly Man button at the top of page for some of this free stuff.
Wherein Crazy Man decides to rediscover “this outside thing” that he’s long since forgotten, having spent gawd knows how long under his bed crying and drinking wine.
He immediately meets a dog walking sideways on stilt-like legs. The dog, Sidestepper, mistakes Crazy Man for his long lost mother but quickly realizes that’s he”s just another insensitive bastard and a world of insensitive bastards.
But the two become companions and travel the path of adventure and new meanings together.
Wherein Crazy Man and the dog, Sidestepper, find a couch on the path of adventure and new meanings and have a long anguish cry or two because they’re hungry and motherless and nothing seems to make sense.
If you have issues with dogs and men crying, you might want to pass on this episode. Three people who intended to read this but didn't still development symptoms of having read it.
That's why I'm leaving it up to you.
Wherein Crazy Man and the dog, Sidestepper, bare their souls in unrequited empathy, only to face the horror of the worm roots from hell.
If you don’t read this episode no one will shame you. Well, some will. But some won’t. Those will be in the minority. A very small minority. But…feel free to wimp out. No hard feelings.
Wherein the two travellers confront the horror of non-vegan wildlife in the deep dark winter, Crazy Man has crazy thoughts about the dog, Stepper, and the two are deeply disturbed by a gift from the heavens.
Scenes in this episode may be disturbing for those who don’t put ketchup on their KD.
The way it should be eaten.
CominWherein our two strange travellers encounter “that which you fear” and come uncomfortably close to “the dreaded truth.”
But…the universe laughs for exactly three minutes and twenty-two seconds.
Or so the story goes.
Wherein our two hungry and motherless travellers are thoroughly mooned in an extraordinary moment of celestial madness.
