work_excerpt: 
A tall skinny man with long brown hair and a big, wide, cheesy, affected smile, wearing a heavy sweatshirt with a big red C on it, is standing on the dock of a large ship. I approach him and say, “What I find interesting about near-death experiences is that people experience a sense of unconditional love and acceptance. I really need that.“ Still smiling his big wide smile, he holds his arms out wide and hugs me, then whispers in my ear: “I hate you." With infinitely self-perpetuating wire cutters, I achieve everything I’ve ever wanted, and suddenly I’m happy, although I wonder if it’s valid.
