Earlier today, I had the drippy mouth. But not the kind where I eat. The kind where I’m hot, and just hot. And there seems to be no cause for it, the hotness. Even when I’m running like hell to stop it. It just gets hotter.

But now, the world is rumbling. Which is one of The Worst Things. I don’t know how the Bald Man stands it, this rumbling business. I think it is his immense bravery and guts.
