Very strange things are afoot, as anyone who pays attention to the world will tell you. Of course that does not differentiate our present age; strange things have always been and always will be afoot.
I think it’s just the particular character of the strangeness.
In the middle of our hallway in our apartment building, a Suzy Boggus Greatest Hits CD materialized, and was lying on the ground.
It’s still there. I’m not sure what to make of it.
Perhaps it is a sign. Perhaps a Suzy Boggus Greatest Hits CD is the early-21st-century equivalent of The Black Spot or, even worse, a severed horse’s head.
After all, what sin could we have committed to be presented with such a ghastly artifact?
