Monday, January 27th, 2014
There was a black, one-way window between me and my father, watching my interrogation. I imagined he was looking down at me with the rest of the generals on the second story. Their room looked down into empty cement room where I sat, alone, on a white chair, watching a black video screen. The decision to move them to another floor had been made recently after one of their interrogations became violent. That is, the person being interrogated became violent.

Good one! I feel bad for humanity, but other than that is was fun.

Took me a while to realize it, but once the thought came, the story took off with me.

How would a person know they were being controlled by a parasite?

An alien parasite could explain so much about the seeming increasingly "gone-insane" nature of the world.
Is it possible that Google is a parasitic virus? Controlling what simply seems to occur to me, and so directs my steps?

Now that this thought - possibly some kind of counterrevolutionary message?- has occurred to me, must I be terminated as a possible threat to the parasite?

What are those footsteps coming down the hall?

Yes, the story really took off with me.
I am now speaking from within the story. I don't know if I get to come back or not.

If you are now also thinking about this, then Welcome Aboard!

Yeah, you can go back if you want to. But you're no threat. You won't do anything about it.

Well, maybe you'll laugh.

Well, when I write a sad ending I want to make sure no one's left out. :D
