Shooks Run (Week 1) & A-to-Z Reflections

Join the reflections from the A-to-Z Challenge!
Shooks Run will be posted weekly for the remainder of the year and complete the story some of you may have been following in Eponymous Monk earlier this year, which kind of continued in April's Interrupting Cat feature for the A-to-Z Challenge.  Together, they finally complete a story I started writing back in high school, which has been given the title Zooropa (which is also the name of a U2 album).  I never knew how the story ended.  I stopped writing the story in high school, and stopped again when I tried to completely rewrite it in 2005.  So I'm glad that I've finally reached that point, and you hopefully might be as well by December (if you want to suffer that long!)...

(I can't pretend I made up Shooks' scale predicament.  Of course, Jonathan Swift and Lewis Carroll played around with that sort of thing, but it was Grant Morrison's modern classic Joe the Barbarian that served as my chief source of inspiration in that regard.  There's also the matter of dismissing Shooks as crazy.  Which is I'm sure how he ended up in the institution in the first place.)

Is that about the goat named Q or whatever?

OK, I'm definitely going to go back and read your A to Z posts! And I'm now following you too. Fantastic! It may take me awhile, but I'll be reading as I have time. :)

Pat, the goat's name ended up being something else. Either you read that or you will be turned into a newt (you will get better, though).

Kristen, glad to catch a straggler!

Now it makes sense.
Sleep or not, at least you had fun.

Asylums sound like fun places to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there.

But they encourage you to hug yourself!
