Day Twenty: The Other Kind of Roommate.

The old adage goes that “you should not judge a book by its cover” and though it is a virtuous sentiment it is not one that is typically followed. Welcome to day Twenty of my 31 Days of First Impressions Challenge! In this challenge I will be reading the first entry or chapter of a different serial (or web fiction) and then give my first impressions on them be they good or bad. In short: I will be judging a book by its cover.

For today’s entry in the challenge, I read The Other Kind of Roommate, by Tartra.

Existential Terror and Breakfast: 15

Epiphanies taste better with toast.

Malcolm Steadman will dial the suicide hotline in 27 days.

His knuckles white, and his sweat cold, Malcolm Steadman gripped the chocolate toaster strudel in front of him as if it were a neck he was trying to strangle. He watched, almost paralyzed as it crumbled into pieces and fell to his kitchen floor like grains of sand in an hour-glass. It was done. All of those poor giraffes, he thought helplessly, gone, forever.

All of those poor giraffes, he thought again. At least the worse part of his day was over. Malcolm Steadman looked down at his smart phone to check the time. It was seven ‘o clock. His attacks were getting longer, and though this last one had gone on for twenty minutes, he still had time to get to work. He ignored the red numbered notification at the corner of his texting app and put away his phone.Continue reading →
