I wake up to a series of loud, jarring knocks: BANG! BANG! BANG!
“OPEN UP OR WE’RE COMING IN!”
“Huh? Whuzzat?” The first thing I see is a mass of veiny flesh. I’m a bit confused at first, but quickly realize it’s just my morning wood.
“Mrrrghh…get off me Snuffaluffagous!” (You’ve all named your nethers; don’t pretend you haven’t) I push away my sentient penis, which I was just using as a body pillow. It crawls back into my undies with a discontented caw.
I sit up in bed and rub my eyes with the crooks of my fingers. Before I can get up and see who it is, the door slams inward and black-clad soldier-enforcers stride into my studio, dialing submachine guns in on my face. A red-robed figure walks through their ranks. Crimson cloth flows off his shoulders and swishes by his feet as he approaches my futon.
“Kent Wayne,” he oozes. “Your crimes against Adulting are many and sundry. Peeing in the bathroom sink—”
“I have a big pee-slit!” I protest. “Goddamn thing is like a duckbilled shotgun! It goes everywhere when I aim at the toilet!”
“Eating half-finished protein bars you fell asleep on—”
“How could you throw away a carbkiller grenade bar? Their cookies n’ cream are beyond compare!”
“Galloping around on all fours like a deviant half-ape—”
“Hey!” I clamber up to my knees, then to my feet, and level a shaking finger at him. “EVERYONE likes to run around on all fours while hooting and gibbering! You repressed fucks just don’t want to admit it!”
“ENOUGH!” He slashes the air with a hand. “Your transgressions have earned you a stay in our Adulting re-education camp. Two years of forced adulting, in which you will be denied permission to poop audibly, be it through splash or fart, where you will eat with a fork and a fucking knife, and where you will also be expected to spend the requisite amount of time at the water cooler, talking about the latest trendy TV show, which must pass our Adulting auditors’ standard for ‘slightly edgy!’ YOU, Kent Wayne—” the red-clad enforcer points at me with a gloved finger. “—WILL be an adult! This has gone on long enough!”
“No!” I yell, flipping up my mattress and stuffing scraps of protein bar I’ve hidden in its blanket-folds into my mouth. “OMNOMGLOMPF! I’m a goddamn Man Child! Ooh-hoo ooh-hoo ooh-hoo ook ooK AWK!” I begin galloping around on all fours, screeching and gibbering.
The red-robed dickhead beckons to his goons. “Seize him!” They sling their weapons back and form a perimeter around me as I bounce off the walls and slap the floor.
I try to squirt past one of them but he grabs me around the waist and drops his weight. I slam down to the deck and the others pile on.
“NO!” I scream, writhing and grunting like a greased pig. “LET GO OF ME YOU FUCKS!”
And then I see it: my eReader. I reach over to it and open it to Echo, activating its reality distortion powers. Magic flash.
Calvin and Hobbes come crashing through the wall on their magic wagon, peeing on everybody and sending them staggering back with a savage chain of nerples, noogies, and wet willies. I join them in battle, throwing underwear-ripping shoryuken-style wedgies as fast as humanly possible. In a matter of seconds, my hands are thick with torn waistbands from both boxers and briefs, and Adulting Academy’s demonic enforcers stumble out of my studio, crying like little bitches.
Ha HA! I will never, EVER succumb to the forces of Adulthood! Moo hoo ha ha!
