Bogleech.com's 2020 Horror Write-off:
I'm a People Person
Submitted by Airborne Terror (email)
I am a people person. I like the life and the attention, I like the party and the dance, and to dance with people, I like the night and the lights and the conversations, I like to lose myself in the crowds and the sounds and the loud sounds that people make in the parties with the music and the lights and the drinks.
I like to watch the people having fun with the people, I like it when they make out with each other on the dark places outside the bright parties, I like it when the music is so loud they can't listen to each other and so they just make signs at each other and they shout but you can't hear because it's loud.
I like people and the hands of people and the eyes of people when they are having a great time and they are happy. I don't like people when they are sad and they are silent and they are dead, dead people don't party but I like the party and so I don't like the dead people because they are boring. The alive people are better because they are young and they have fun with the people and themselves with the music. I like it when they get like super wasted and talk to me about their dreams and they don't make sense because they are dreams.
I like the beautiful people that can move their arms and I like the beautiful people that know how to walk with their legs and run with their legs when they want to feel alive. They make me want to dance with my legs and forget that my legs don't dance very well when I want them to dance and be beautiful, I like the beautiful people when they laugh and the beautiful people when they say to each other that they are beautiful and I love you. I love the people too.
I like to go out with people when we go out and go to places with other people, I like when they say hi to each other and sometimes they say hi to me when I'm with people.
I don't like to get ready to go out with the people because sometimes it takes too long and I don't like to look at myself when I'm not ready to go out and meet the people. I don't like to get ready to go out with people because I have to remember a lot of things and sometimes I forget and then I can't go with people because my arms are wrong.
I don't like my arms very much because I forget a lot about how they work and then they are wrong. I like my arms when I fold them right and the hands can wave and say hi to the people, I like it when the people see my hands and say hi back.
I like to go to the parties when people fall asleep afterwards because I can remember how to people better and then I get myself ready the right way. When I'm not around the people I forget some things and then my legs are too long and they don't work and they don't dance. I don't want to forget how to dance because I like to dance but I can't dance if I can't remember what my hands used to look like when I danced and people saw me dance and they talked to me.
I like when the people talk to me about their things because now they don't talk to me as much as they used to, sometimes they talk to me a bit when I get ready right but then they forget and they don't see me or then they scream when they see I forgot a thing about getting ready for people. I don't like it when they scream because the party is over if they scream and i like the part when they are happy at the party even if they don't see me there.
Sometimes I'm too big to get ready and I don't fit through the doors of the people and I get stuck. Then I remember that I can pass through the doors and the houses and the people and I have fun with the people inside of the people in the house. Sometimes I forget where the arms go and the head goes and my body doesn't make sense so those days I don't like to go out and meet people.
I like to be with people because they are fun and they are alive and they make me remember that I was fun and alive too. I am a people person, I like the life and the attention because life is fun and being dead with the dead people is very boring.
