We watched you last night, they said.
I said, wait what?
My roommates said, on Ghost Hunters.
Last night I was writing until three in the morning at that place with paintings on the ceiling and where they serve coffee and stay open all night. At home, we don’t have cable, nor were there reruns of old GHI episodes on a Tuesday night. On YouTube then? My roommates? Who care as little about ghost hunting as my couch does? Going out of their way to watch me, their moody, socially uncomfortable friend who lives in the basement, on TV?
On Netflix, my roommates said.
On Netflix, I repeated. Old GHIs are on Netflix?
Indeed they said. And we watched.
So, it seems, can you. Like me. Every day, should I have only a mirror. And an England to wander about in.
