"I've brought home hallucinations before, but most of them never actually ask to come over, they just follow me."
    I was used to hallucinating, but there's a point where it just gets too much. I don't like it when cards hit on me. I liked Julia, I wanted her to stay. The elephant was a little annoying, but I could live with it. The giraffe would probably break my table, but I never really ate at it anyways. But cards do not hit on me
I really love the quote in the beginning of your description. :)
