taojones in a fit of desperation, i'm clinging to what i suppose is the surface of some counter-top; my thumbs feel swollen---maybe they're broken, i dunno---and i'd like very much to continue clawing my way out of this silent nightmare.

i ask for change, hand over the folded bill...

there's writing all over it---so much that she checks to see if it's actually money, which of course it is.

tick-tick...

i'm handed a series of bills in return, wondering how she chose these particular denominations; i haven't specified.

i study the bills laboriously, appearing determined to find what i-suppose-she-supposes are flaws or otherwise incongruent marks which may give them away as counterfeit...

which of course, they aren't.

i walk out, reach in my pocket for my keys which i retrieve but then remember that i'd walked.

i sigh, and remind myself to take some ibuprofen when i get home...

FA113N Once in a lifetime, you get to say "fuck the rules" and go against convention.

You get to throw caution to the wind, go against what society, your friends, your parents, your peers think. Chase the dream, follow the path less travelled. Go on an adventure.

But what if you did that once and it ended in the wreckage of your life?

That's what happened to her. So now... Now I know I wasted that once in a lifetime. I threw it all away. And that's the point.

You don't get twice in a lifetime. It is once upon a time for a reason, and I don't fit in her fairytale.
