In Which Kat Visits the Health Food Store and Leaves Feeling Oddly Normal
Cashier, pointing to the keychain on my backpack: "I have to ask. Is that a Native American symbol."
Me: "Um, no...it's from Doctor Who."
Cashier, with a blank stare: "Is that a movie?"
Me: "It's a British sci-fi series."
Cashier, again pointing at my keychain: "And what is the significance?"
Me: "It's a key....to a time machine."
Awkward silence during which I feel as though I have a giant sign above my head with the work "FREAK" painted in bold letters and an arrow pointing down at me.
Cashier: "So, if you could go back in time anywhere, where would you go?"
Me, caught somewhat off-guard: "Actually, I really don't know."
Cashier: "I would go visit all my past lives."
Awkward silence in which the giant sign moves from above my head to above hers.
