I’m racing down the highway, engine revving as I shift into fifth. I throw a terrified glance in the rearview: An army of Tahoes, Yukons, and Suburbans are chasing me. A soccer mom had heard me say something non-worshipful about Kate Middleton and immediately started pursuing me. Apparently they have some kind of hive-mind-pheromonal-comms device, because one SUV quickly turned into a dozen, then a hundred. I’m weaving through a crowded highway, punching forward, screaming across lanes. Two SUVs pull up beside me, boxing me in. I see Botox-ed faces shrieking at me in rage. Shit, this is the end…I’m sorry for those times I took the last slice of pizza…sorry for those times when I took advantage of the free samples at Whole Foods…my eReader drops out of my pocket, open to Echo. Magic flash. A flood of torrid romance novels rains down from the sky, and suddenly the soccer moms brake in the highway, jump out of their cars, and turn on each other, trying to grab as many books as they can. As they exchange vicious chains of Krav Maga strikes, I make my escape by putting pedal to the metal.
