Night Visions Main
"We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.'" -- Ben Franklin
Codes: "IRL" = "in real life". "INV" = "in Night Vision", meaning untrue in real life.
"Skip" means a sudden transition from one segment to another. "The 1250" references my childhood home, a (too) frequent setting for my visions. Josie is my daughter, and most of my life has been spent with Chicken and Alex as friends. Any other people referenced, past jobs worked at or life experiences are real unless otherwise noted.

Splat! (August 4, 2020)
It's the SF Bay Area radio program Damon, Ratto & Kolsky. For some reason, it has a video opening, during which the overweight Ratto tries to jump onto a ledge and falls flat on his face; I later complain about my name's exclusion from the show title.
Skip to some basketball camp; I get hungry but all concession stands are shut down due to COVID.
You Can't HAVE It! (August 2, 2020)
Tonight, I'm back doing armored car work, along with retired MLB stars CC Sabathia and Gary Sheffield. I enter some art gallery and make the pickup, but return outside to find my partners gone. It's not long before passerby realize what's up and try to get at the cash; I swat them all away until my partners finally return (they had gone gambling up the road).
A couple of dudes still want trouble, forcing Sabathia and I to finally draw our guns and issue one last warning. This works, but at the next stop the fellas abandon me again and don't return this time. Oh, well.
Next, I'm at the park when some kids borrow my bat (breaking it) and my basketball (losing it). As any mature well-adjusted adult would do, I pick up the severed end of the bat and loudly threaten the children with it until they flee.
Don't Die Anymore, Okay? (August 1, 2020)
I and the cast of General Hospital sit on the floor for some medical presentation. In each arm are the characters Liz and Emily; the latter of whom also gifts me with a smooch and I get despondent about her death, wondering how I'm able to go on. That question is answered with a skip to the loony bin; GH characters (and sworn enemies) Scott and Luke have switched bodies. Figuring this out, I inform "Luke" he and Scott would be buddies if not for the infamous Laura character. "Luke" blows me off.
I am eventually brought to a loony bin testing room; they give me medicine but I can't take it because I'm bouncing on the bed uncontrollably like some sugared-up toddler.
