“Well. That will be two dollahs an’ eighty-seven CENT, then. And, I must tell you, my name is Jeff. Geoffrey Vallgut Thomas, the one and only kaboose.”
Bill pays for his food and waits a moment, keeping his peepers trained to the ground as to avoid eye contact with the strange man who is mentally rearranging Bill’s face as I type.

Hello Commons, this has been the second story from the twelfth chapter of The 2020 Event |The Sideshows|, a satirical short story anthology about Existence and the universes that float within it. |The Sideshows| is the final book of the First Spiral, a longer story called The Highest One Writing.
The Highest One Writing is a story about an author told through the books he wrote. It starts with a self-help book and ends with the destruction of Existence. Also, it may or may not take you to the depths of insanity and back.
|The Sideshows| is available to read for free in its entirety on my website. Click here to check it out.
I’ve written a few other books, too. Click here to see the list.
