a sign I watch too much anime?

April 20, 2007

Since last May, I have worked the twilight shift at UPS sorting packages. Tonight on the way home from work in pitch darkness I saw a figure coming at me with rollerskates, a trucker hat, and what looked liked a very long bat which was probably just a hockey stick. So anyway I turn onto my street and he follows me! Not only that, he was rapidly gaining on me. When I was safely in the garage I looked behind and he vanished.

If you don’t know what I’m getting at, a couple years ago [adult swim] aired an anime called Paranoia Agent. A young boy on rollerskates goes around striking down emotional distraught people with a baseball bat and vanishes as soon as soon as he arrives. I’m concerned.

In any case I was terrified for a full 10 seconds.
