I dreamt that I witnessed a woman give birth in a Hot Topic. The cashier was in Nightmare Before Christmas themed scrubs and her arms were covered in 2008 era meme tats. She delivered the baby and wrapped it in an MCR shirt as it tugged on her gauges. “Her name is Bellatrix” said the mom. Store patrons applauded as they were wheeled out of the store, the baby suckling on a complimentary bottle of Ramune. The point at which I realized it was a dream was when I asked myself why the hell I was in a Hot Topic at all. #AmericanMallGothic
