[2019/05/10 - Driving Me Crazy]
Title Text: finally I recognize the face of my Hibachi dealer who takes off his prosthetic lips and tells me

See, Marion, you got this backwards. You're supposed to go the "hallucination" route first.

I don’t think a plan that involves bleeding out on the pavement is a very well conceived plan.

I think even if he was hallucinating that would warrant calling in sick! Just call up the school and say:

"Hey, I'm looking in the mirror right now, and I'm a squirrel. If I am really a squirrel, then I need to take the day off to freak out. If I'm hallucinating, then I need to take the day off to go to the hospital."

I would love to know through what elaborate means he managed to open his car door and get inside. I'm imagining chairs and pillows. I would also like to know how he managed to open a door to get outside but again I'll stick with chairs and pillows that or he does have a dog door which seems silly as we've seen before.

I guess now the question is: Is Marion going to go looking for help, or is he going to be found by someone? Is someone like King or one of the others who are familiar with him going to hear about this squirrel that's raving about actually being human and go "waaaait a minute..."

Now he fears the idea of being mad
and follows through his normal day;
it’s enough, indeed, to make you sad
as we see the kid try and play.
How did he climb up to the seat
and shouldn’t he have his seatbelt on?
His optimism is hard to beat
but STILL has him hitting a pylon.
It’s time to accept it, little nut;
it’s time to talk to the others.
They may help you out of your rut;
your new Squirrelly brothers.

If you are really a squirrel you need the day to go to the plastic surgeon.

So he is more okay with saying it's a hallucination instead of thinking this is just a dream? :mrgreen:

Oh that would be a plot twist:
This is actually a dream someone from the maincast has or Marion is the main character in a book someone is writing :mrgreen:

Well, at least he's not roadkill. Has Marion just become the first character to be alone on stage for two whole weeks by himself (disembodied voices not counting)? Not bad for a "newbie".

You’re not getting anywhere, Marion.

No, you’re literally not getting anywhere. I'm not sure you can reach the ignition, much less the gas pedal.

Since it’s the near end of the school year, where any absence can effect you a lot more noticeably, it’s plausible one of the wolves might come by to check on Marion. That’s still my big guess on who he meets first.

You know Marion, the easiest way to check to see if you are hallucinating is pinch yourself. Though, a part of me would love to see a squirrel drive a car now :lol:

So it looks like driving is not the answer... Maybe he has a skateboard, or something smaller (preferably with wheels) that he can ride to school?

You're thinking Silent Hill at this point, my boy!

I'm surprised he got this far as well. I get the impression either everyone is not home or everyone is in the same boat as him and he's not noticing.

That being said, he really should've tried seeing if he acquired supernatural jumping. Dreaming usually does that to you. Hallucinations usually require looking at a mirror and seeing something weird :3

Fingers crossed on it being the latter. It be so fun seeing all the humans basically relying on the Miltons so they can keep their jobs legally (if they are still at a size they can) and/or having to use the Internet to keep up the illusion they are still human to all but fellow locals. It’s clearly not the whole world, but Babylon Gardens is just one town... it be amusing to figure out how Steward managed that if so, but I am not against that, especially as the decision to not leave the house for so long on Rick’s part makes so much more sense if he’s setting up that reveal, as we can fill in the blanks that every human more or less is having the same experience as Marion. Also makes a few other things make more sense, like why his mom didn’t respond to his calls, imagine she turned into a mouse, how’s she even gonna begin to pick it up?

There was actually multiple episode that involved squirrels in them in phineas and ferb. Squirrelz in her pants being the most obvious example, but anyone remember the episode went to squirrel con (basically a furry con)?

You're such a stubborn, Marion. :P You're now a real squirrel, deal with it. 8-) Ok, you can try to go to school, but definitely not by car, you're now too small for it. :D The school personal will throw you out, though. :?

I mean, the most obvious reason for this transformation is the coin, right?
Well... remember when Steward first got the coin? His change was almost instant. Marion probably would have noticed the change if he were awake, and if he were sleeping I don't think he'd be able to hold the coin.
I don't know what else could have caused this though. We'll just have to wait and see.

Sidenote: Marion's tail so fluffy I can't deal :D

So apparently it looks like that Marion drives an old Buick at least based on the floor shifter extending all the way to the back like that.

Or if not, I wanna know what car he does drive? I already figured out that the Sandwiches have a Saturn SL.

Much less getting it into the keyhole, opening the car door, getting the keys out of the car door, getting inside the car, closing the door, and (presumably) starting the ignition.

Also, I'm surprised he finally thought of the hallucination route now. Took a while. The fact though is that he's now either in the garage or he's outside in his car, which means we're starting to drive towards the plot.

Okay so according to my Five Stages we have reached stage 3. Or I guess a better analysis would be that we have been jumping back and forth between the first three stages. I would qualify screaming into a pillow "freaking out" if not in the tradition sense as we already saw.
His next option would likely seek help again. Hopefully from someone more reliable than his mother like a total stranger.
