Well that's probably not best practice. One word and that wrench comes tumbling down. No need to argue about that now though. He really, really wants to know about the giraffe.

"So, about just now," he begins.

Well, she needed her hands free to climb. She's clipped in up top now, though, so she takes the wrench from her mouth. "What? And bring those other cans up here, we don't have all day."

Permalink

He brings them.

"The giraffe. Why was that here? What is going on with this school?"

Permalink

She begins fastening one of them to the truss.

"No idea what you're talking about."

Permalink

"The literal giraffe who talked to us as we came in?"

Permalink

"That was a teacher, I'm pretty sure?"

Permalink

"THAT WAS A GIRAFFE!"

He did not hallucinate an entire giraffe. He knows this.

Permalink

"Are you safe to be up here? It's dangerous to be up high when you've been seeing things."

She does not need to talk about the giraffe with him.

Permalink

"The thing that isn't safe here is the giraffe!"

Permalink

Speaking slowly and enunciating carefully: "There. Is. No. Giraffe."

Permalink

"Okay, let me ask you something: who did you see talking to us when we came through the door?"

Permalink

"Our teacher."

Permalink

"Okay, well I saw a giraffe. How do you explain that?"

Permalink

"You drank too much coffee this morning."

Permalink

"Since when is coffee a hallucinogenic?"

Permalink

"You have no idea what I put in your coffee, do you?" She ruffles his hair and straightens, unclipping from the truss and climbing down to retrieve the last two cans.

Permalink

"I think my hallucinations wouldn't make so much sense if I were being drugged."

Permalink

She smiles patronizingly. "Why don't you focus on bolting down those lights you love so much? You forgot the washer with that one."

Permalink

... Fine. He will let it go for now. He puts a washer on the light without asking more questions.

Permalink

Maybe this one could be in the Revue. Better than Esther, that's for sure. He cranes his neck, staring directly at Zero.

Permalink

He whisper-hisses to S.

"S! He's looking at me right now!"

Permalink

"Yeah, you're stripping the screw."

Permalink

He looks down. He is stripping the screw.

"No, I meant the giraffe staring directly at us."

Permalink

"His neck isn't that long, dumbass."

Permalink

Everything about this is weird and annoying and he hates it. He will stop saying things now.
