It started as a faint signal off in the distance, a blip I barely noticed. If I squinted real hard I could kind of make out something... I think it is green? Curious, I wondered what it was and started to ask questions. Have you heard anything about that green thing? Do you see it, too? Answers led to more questions and I began to concentrate on it. By now a beam of green had come into focus. Always there, in plain sight, I decided to follow it. No, I was drawn to it. The further I went, the stronger it got. It seemed to be honing in on me. Everywhere I went, there it was! What if someone sees me like this? What will the neighbors think? What about my family? I could not escape it. There was no where to hide. Wait! What's that?! A phone booth. I can hide in there. By now green surrounds me, it is blinding. What am I to do? I can't hide in here forever. I take a deep breath, put my ego aside and step out the door. It is time to embrace it.
