Feel the Top of Your Head to Find Out If You're Me
If you have some of the same issues as me (which you don't) or you are me (which you're most likely not) then I recommend you stay out of my attic. Strange things have been known to happen when people like me go up there.
For example, if you do go up, the same crossbeam that you duck under to get to the toddler clothes will be right there in the SAME PLACE when you carry those clothes out, ducking not quite as low as you did on the way in. Freaky.
Also, if you go up again a couple of days later, the exact same crossbeam, for some indeterminable reason, will STILL BE IN THAT VERY SAME PLACE. Only a psychic could foresee something like that. Seriously. Attics freak. me. out.
They also give me scabs on my scalp that don't go away for two weeks. Which is nothing compared to the feeling of standing alone, laden with bags of clothes in a dim and dusty room, head throbbing, feeling a deep sense of embarrassment. Is it even possible to feel embarrassed when you're the only one around?
It is if you have some of the same issues as me (which you don't) or you are me (which, lucky for you--and your head--you're most likely not).
