It was then that I decided to become a symbiote.

  • It was then that I decided to become a symbiote. Why deal with the hassle of driving to a supermarket and shelling out half your paycheck for food when you could just get your

  • nutrients from the thoughts of small minded people? I loved my new life as a symbiote. Angry thoughts are chewy, annoyance is crunchy but my favourite - boredom- is buttery and

  • with a beer aftertaste. As a symbiote I decided to gorge on boredom. I forced my host to go to church, then to an insurance seminar, then to an inter-faith dialogue symposium.

  • We even sat through Dell Griffin's pitch several times. We ended up with a bunch of shower curtain rings we would never need but boy were we properly bored.

  • My mum needed shower curtain rings so I gave them to her. Dell Griffin was her guardian angel at a time when she was broke. I got a reward, which will be a surprise. Good enough.

  • "No, not good enough!" said Capt. Shower Curtain. He flew into my Mum's bathroom cowled in a shimmering shower curtain made of fairy dust. He told her its fine fabric was invisible

  • and mildew resistant, but my Mum just screamed at the sight of a naked man in her bathroom. Captain Shower Curtain screamed back because she had all ready pulled down her knickers

  • and it's a damn shame...that's all he could say, over and over, again: It's a damn shame!" For thirty years, nobody threw a whistle her way...nobody contorted their eyes and neck

  • to look at her, nobody dare mention her name. For she was but a mere memory nowadays. That's what fame does to you, you see. One day you're hot, the next you're not. She just

  • vanished from the world's stage. I hear she's moved to a little cottage in the mountains where she paints pictures of the local bird life. Maybe she'll finally feel at peace.

    Poor Mum. She seems to have been oblivious to Captain Shower Curtain's apparent sexual preferences. But maybe it's just as well.
