It’s one of the first chilly Monday mornings. I’m in bed, wrapped in a mess of blankets and freshly-washed clothes that I was too lazy to put away the night before. It’s a comfortable place to be in, and I sure as hell don’t want to move. I’m also—as much as I hate admitting this—not sure I want to keep my appointment at the Church of Scientology that’s in an hour.
