RECAP from previous Episode 7a:
So I couldn’t get the dang thing off my chest; its head was flopping in my face.

Episode 7b: FREE WILL

Anytime I take a step, the head smacks me in the face. Really?

In the meantime, all the other s/he/its were zipping around in the air oblivious that one of their brethren is stuck on me, dead to the world. The heck with it–this is worse than claustrophobia. I gather all my inner chi/chi and make like I’m gonna strangle myself but instead of my neck, it’s that s/he/it’s neck I squeeze and with thoughts of Popeye on a spinach high in my head, I rip the freakin’ thing off of me.

Free at last! Only…

RECAP of Episode 1

Man, just when I was salivating for some sweet/sweet treats.

The thing is, when the bobbleheads popped out they eventually came crashing back down like guided missiles targeting us. We had to scramble for our lives, running in zig zags/zig zags to avoid the once innocent bobbles that shattered on contact into a million pieces. Just like in the movies, the shattered pieces regrouped, morphing into…
