It was so cold that afternoon. Too cold to go outside. | So I put on the central heating and stayed indoors. I turned on the TV. An old episode of the Twilight Zone came on. The story was about | a person stuck inside because it was too cold to go outside. | Was this story about me? I thought to myself, it looks like me. Is my life an episode of the Twilight Zone? But the person on the TV was slowly going crazy, eating almost everything in the house and throwing everything they didn't eat into the fire. | I then realised I was holding a revolver to my temple. I was tempted to pull the trigger but decided against suicide. I got up and walked to the kitchen. During the journey from the entrance to the fridge, I slipped on a banana peel.
