I am scarred for life. I was walking down the street, as ya do, and looking at people (which is bad, very very wrong of me. Rule 1 of NYC life: always stare at the beautiful sidewalk below. If you’re lucky you’ll find a penny, which is more than I’ll have in probably a month. COLLEGE, AM I RIGHT?), when I saw this couple walking my direction.
The guy was normal looking (interpret that as you will) but the woman he was with… well, she was dressed in regular clothes, seemed totally ordinary until you LOOKED AT HER FACE. I know what you’re thinking: Wow, Maddy, how can you be so shallow, have you looked in the mirror lately? What was that you said about a Freshman -15 or did you get hungry and eat the computer after you wrote that? All valid questions (though they may sting), but what was actually scary about this woman was that she had Chewbacca’s face. I don’t say this in a derogatory way, I just mean that literally, her face was Chewbacca from Star Wars. Like she had human eyes and everything but around those eyes was brown fur, basically this:
I still get chills just thinking about this sight. It was just so confusing. I felt disoriented and scared as I stumbled back to my dorm like a drunkard, still shocked by what I’d just seen. It was not until days later that I realized this was during the NYC Comic Con. All of a sudden, everything started to make sense. The image still keeps me up at night, though.
And that’s that.
P.S. I like mayo!
