I received this photo via email from my dad with the subject “time to move?”. This lovely picture was actually taken in my parent’s bathroom. Thanks to the fact that the bathroom doesn’t get much sun and is always kind of damp and that it looks like the floor hasn’t been cleaned in like 18 years, a mushroom actually sprung up between the floor tiles. My father added to this already creepy photo by scrawling a cryptic title and literary reference across the image (using, you guessed it, Microsoft Paint).
The email traffic that followed:
Joe (brother) – I wish you could have seen this in person. Unreal.
Mom – This is so depressing.
Ellie (me) – I don’t think these things happen to other people.
