Hello everyone! As you can probably guess from the title of this post I am going on a semi-hiatus. The next two weeks are going to be very busy for me as it is the end of the semester and I have a lot of final papers to write and exams to study for. So I’m taking a little break from the blog.
I will still continue to post submissions in the queue as I can (it is empty right now, sadly) but I will not be taking any new submissions. I want to keep the ask open so I can continue to answer questions people have or just chat about some of the wonderful HCs, but please don’t submit anything. If I see a lot of people are ignoring that, I will have to close the ask.
Thank you for understanding and I hope everyone has an amazing day.
“So I’m standing there filling up like I’ve done a thousand times before, and I hear a chunk. You know, the pump’s nozzle. The– the metal thing. The thing you squeeze, right? I hear a chunk. So I suppose, in my naivete, I took to understand that gas is no longer coming out of the nozzle, so I pull out the hose to put it back and whoosh! You know, I am suddenly soaked in gasoline. I mean, on my arms and my legs and my– my groin. So now I am in a panic, and I race home, I run inside the house, and I’m stripping off my clothes as fast as I can. I jump in the shower. It’s not until after I get out of the shower that I realize my gas-covered clothes have been soaking in the living room rug this entire time. I mean, it’s– it’s– the whole thing is just so stupid. I could have rinsed off at the station. Halfway home, I’m starting to realize– wait a minute– there’s a water hose right there next to the air pump. You know, for tires. Anyway, so that was my day. How was yours?”
