The Alleyway

My roommate struck again.

For those of you who don’t know, my roomie, Emily, is psychic.

Don’t blow me off here, I’m serious!

There is no other possible way to explain some of the things that have happened!

Early on in our time of rooming together, about a month in, Emily tried to get me to try tea. I’d gone 21 years of happily disliking tea, so I kept saying no.

Then, I got sick. It was an upper respiratory infection (a bad cold), and I was so sick.

Emily walked in to my acceptance of defeat from the cold. This time, she said tea and honey would help a lot. I would have eaten lava if the cold would go away, so I gave in. She controlled my mind into enjoying tea.

Then, there was the joining her and her boyfriend Tommy at small group. Emily told me there was a dog and food, and I didn’t have anything else to do on Thursday night.

I’ve never really been a religious person. If I went, to church, I was usually bored out of my mind.

This was different. These people were real. They didn’t try to shove religion down my throat, nor did they bug me with an inquisition. It was chill. Or so it seemed.

Emily is obviously slowly reaching into my mind and swirling it around.

Next, she said if I went to her church with her on Sunday afternoon, I could better understand the small group topics.

Of course I wanted to look smart, so I went. Emily is sneaky, slowly guiding me into her ways.

My most recent evidence of mind control is Doctor Who.

I have a general dislike of sci-fi. I’m more of a fantasy fan, like Buffy or Supernatural. Sci-fi would get confusing in the books I’d try to read.

The fact that I tried to start out with Star Wars and Sanderson novels as a sixth grader could be a factor… anyways, I just decided sci-fi wasn’t my thing.

Emily loves Doctor Who. I’m pretty sure there are at least five TARDIS objects in the room. She’s cool, so I’d listen to her tales of how much Tommy was loving Doctor Who.

I finished a series and needed something new, so Emily "suggested" Doctor Who.

Nothing else to watch, so I started it. Five episodes into it and I thought, okay this isn’t bad. I continued on.

Now I’m four seasons in and questioning my life. Emily’s mind control needs to calm down.

Sorcery man. Total sorcery.

Side note, if anyone knows how to stop my roommate’s mind control powers, please help. I might be becoming... a Whovian...
