“It’s not a disability,” Syawn, my main-character-muse asserts. “We can traverse far more planes and universes than you can. There’s only one you can exist in. There’s only one we can’t exist in. Who’s really the reality-impaired here?”
Fair enough. And ouch, while we’re at it.
Still, the Stranger Than Truth Club takes people from all walks of life, universes, times, and species, and brings us together through beautiful, ever-evolving, cross-plane friendships.
I wish I could give you a glimpse into our insightful, loving, hilarious, open community. Unfortunately, I can only give you transcripts of our idiocy.
And so without further ado:
Truth is stranger than fiction. We are–
Tirzah: Hey, D, check this out.
Danielle: Well. Hmm.
Tirzah: Yeah. Mixed feelings on this. And in case you think, “Maybe the caption lies…” Nope, there’s a swastika on his shirt.
Will: That’s hard to wear, these days. And hey, how ‘bout those sneakers in the background?
Danielle: What about them?
Will: I dunno. We were talking about clothes. Seemed a natural segue.
Danielle: Well, dude. Stay hydrated, and don’t be an ass.

Danielle: Dude. Why are you always catering to her?

Tirzah: Eh, accurate, but I’m not sure it fits the original tone of your comment. “Bigoted ass”?
Will: Could just say “bigot”. That’s pretty much synonymous with “ass”.
Will: I’mma look for synonyms. *opens dictionary tab* “…Illiberal, brassbound, intolerant, small-minded, unenlarged” (oo-er)… “Lily-white” and “conservative” are related words, huh? Doesn’t pay to be pale.
Allyn: Now that’s bigoted.
Sy: If this doesn’t get you girls comments, I don’t know what will. You may even get angry comments, or people misconstruing everything! *claps hands in faux delight* You’ve never had those before!
Danielle: Once you start tagging things “KKK”…
