I’ve been watching the weather lately. I want to drive south, but a big storm system has been moving through the Southwest, and I try to be prudent. Best to wait a few days!
I was browsing various sites on the web this morning when I heard a weird hissing sound. I looked away from the computer monitor and saw this!
“Shit! Who or what are you?!”, I exclaimed.
The strange creature laughed.
“I am Quetzalcoatl, Larry! I’m surprised that you didn’t recognize me.”
“Well, now I do. So what’s up?”
“Oh, nothing much. It’s a bummer being an obsolete god consigned to oblivion. We never really die, but the more believers we have, the more vigor and power we have.”
“Yeah, I can imagine. I wonder if writers like Neil Gaiman might help?”
The weird figure gradually faded away. An interesting encounter indeed!
