Cool way to take attendance. And yet not cool. I'd feel like a grocery item.

That was such an intriguing little trip in such a strange world. The whole sequence feels appropriately dreamlike too.

So, may I ask if this is going to be fleshed out into a book of its own or are you going to keep it as a stand alone short?
                              I thought it was interesting, but wanted more.

This is a pretty trippy story. ☺ P.S I love the picture! Is it a banner? If so can I use it? I will most definitely give you credit for it.
