I feel like I’m in a fishbowl. There certainly is no privacy. But I’m definitely not the only one. In fact I’m completely surrounded by a very colorful and diverse population.
I’m told the trick to this life is to stay on top, which I Have been able to do for some time now.
However, something happens periodically that reminds me of a movie where someone is caught in quicksand and s-l-o-w-l-y sinks out of sight.But it’s not a character in a movie but myself that is being drawn closer to the bottom. The gravitational pull stops for a respite but will eventually begin again. Try as I might, I can’t return to where I was. This happens over and over again.
I continue to sink lower and lower until darkness eventually envelops myself. I hopelessly scream out in the darkness for help but no one seems to hear. I reach out to stop my descent but to no avail, as there seems to be nothing or no one to grab hold of. Finally, I see a tunnel with a light at the end of it.
That should be a sign of hope but I feel the impending doom hover over me as I enter the tunnel and begin to slide down it.
Oh, the life of a gumball.
