The Bump Stock Diaries

 animation (Phoenix7777)

Have you ever awakened in the middle of a conversation? Perhaps the person you’ve been talking with about banning bump stocks gets the idea you haven’t been listening. They may not realize that it’s more than either of you bargained for, as you were temporarily disengaged from your normal space/time coordinates. If that sounds eerie, it’s something that will increasingly occur with chinks in time and wormholes becoming a little like the unconscious—something which has always been present, but which has hitherto been out of the realm of awareness. On the other side of the fence, the next time you’re feeling someone is snubbing you, giving you the cold shoulder or getting that glazed look in their eyes, just as brilliant locutions effortlessly flow forth, it’s not because they undervalue you and are looking for someone they regard as more useful and important. Rest assured. They’re here because they're not all there. Or as Oscar Wilde once said, “it’s only shallow people who do not judge by appearances.”
