Mike and El love to lay on his bed listening to old music, talking about little things; constellations, school, the future, their feelings. They hold hands, and lazily laugh when the other cracks a joke. The first time Mike says “I love you”, the sun is pouring through the window and warming their skin, and El is rambling about missing a class the day before. She stops talking, grins…
And then the kool-aid man bursts through the wall.
So since The Cask of Amontillado is apparently the meme of the day this seems like the perfect opportunity to tell a stupid anecdote related to the story that happened to me in 10th grade.
So we had just read the story in English class, and my teacher, rather than actually, like, teaching us anything, had us draw up a comic of it. But we had to make some kind of change to it to make it our own. So I started drawing, and I got really focused on it (in that way that really should have foreshadowed my ADHD diagnosis, but I digress). So I’m at, like, the very end of the story (like, the guy’s getting sealed in the wall) and I still haven’t done anything to actually change anything, other than mocking the dialogue in a really ham-handed and not-actually-funny-in-hindsight kinda way. So I was sitting there at my desk just, like, “oh shit shit shit what can I change at this late in the story I don’t want to have to do this whole fucking thing again.”
So I decided that the best course of action was to just have
reveal at the very last second that he’s a werewolf and burst out of the wall, killing
Montresor. This literally took the form of Fortunato bursting Kool-Aid Man style out of the almost-sealed wall saying “oh by the way I’m a werewolf,” to which Montresor replied “oh no!” before getting mauled. This happened in the last two panels.
Alright, because everyone is doing these, and because ‘tis the season, I figured I’d make one of my own so that I wouldn’t be left behind. This is also to show my thanks and gratitude to y’all for sticking around and dealing with all my bad grammar, stupid remarks, awkward posts & etc. Special shoutouts to those who have been with me for years, y”all the real MVP’s and I couldn’t have done it without any of you. This one’s for you all!
