Morgan night continues. This book excerpt is for @talaberrycrew because she had a question about horror movies 😉
The duration of the 5-hour drive passed in weirdly sublime ways. Morgan quickly tired of being at all serious—or staying on any one topic for too long. He had basically the worst case of ADD Muse had ever seen. If Muse went quiet, Morgan would get like an irritably bored child. Driving was boring. Driving long, empty roads was the “boringest” of all. So for several hours Morgan demanded a constant barrage of incongruous conversations to entertain him—from the mundane (An Ode to Olives) to the scathingly academic (the thematic significance of names in Wuthering Heights.) He wasn’t keen to chat about the past, Rosary Hall, or his siblings (and not because he was touchy.) “Considering the infantile imbecile Our Poetry is at present, if I have to brood upon him any further, he won’t survive the night.” So instead Muse made the mistake of trying to be more spontaneous and asked Morgan to list his Top Ten favorite horror movies.
Morgan hissed like he’d been burned. “You unimaginable bastard! My brain is going to be in knots for hours because of this! I simply can't choose! No—NO—I refuse! I rebel! I can't possibly compartmentalize nearly enough to accomplish this exorbitant feat!! How can you just EXPECT me to comb through all the nethers of artistic influence, of creative onslaught to choose TEN favorites?! Do you have any iDeA what an act of SADISM this is?!?!? Nothing I say will be good enough! No list will ever be complete! I WILL INEVITABLY FORGET SOMETHING. To ignorantly exclude some profound contender without which I might not be me....What was the question?” 🖤☠️ ... words by me, pic by me 👍 #iplehouse #iplehousearvid #bjd #bjdoc #bjdsofinstagram #dollstagram #bjdboy #creepydoll #mynovel #balljointeddolls #bjdaddict #dollspam
