I showed up at the Mental Health Department in character, as Don Quixote. I picked a fight with an empty chair in the waiting room, and lost.
They admitted me, and now I have my own place a plant named Ralph, and the sketch of a cow in a frame. Soon, I’ll write a book titled
“Tuesday Night is Wheel of Fortune,” which will sell four copies before my death, when it’ll sell millions. But nobody I love will get the royalties, due to some publishing scam.
