Back a couple of years ago, I took a summer off to bum around Northern California. I wound up in this town where weirdness and "glitches" were about
as normal as eating breakfast.
There was a guy I met while I was there who was a glitch unto himself. He walked everywhere he went, but he got places way faster than you could
walking even at a brisk pace. One day I watched him, and as he was strolling away, he just kinda "jumped"... like he was crossing the street and
then an instant later he was four blocks away. I don't think he had any idea that he was doing that, but he did it a lot anyway. He also told me
about a time when he was driving up north of this town. He and his wife were having the worst fight they'd ever had, and he just snapped and and took
the car off of a hill where the road curved around, killing himself, his wife, and their son... except that at the moment they'd have died from the
impact, they all found themselves going around the same hill in their unwrecked car, badly shaken. He says he remembers the lurch of going over, and
seeing the ground fly towards him, the impact, and then suddenly they were just driving along again. He said that when he met his wife, he knew that
he had been put on the earth to love and protect her, and he figured that by killing her he had violated that purpose, so it all just clicked back to
the point where he could just keep driving. I don't know about that part, but as for the story, I don't think he was lying to me.
In my time in this town, I met a guy who I liked, and we started seeing each other. It lasted about a week before he was gonna move on to a different
town, and I refused to go with because it was such an abrupt decision and I hadn't known him for a long time. The day that we broke up, my mom saw us
together with one of our mutual friends going towards the church where we hung out a lot, and another mutual friend saw us together at the park. These
were people who knew that we had split up, so it was curious to them seeing us together again so soon. As we were spotted throughout the day, I was at
the library drowning my sorrow with internet. I don't know where he was, but we were most certainly Not together that day. The people who spotted us
weren't people who would have mistaken other people for us, either, and even if they had been, he was the only blond haired green eyed black guy in
town, possibly the whole county... and I doubt that my own mother would think somebody else was me.
