Paper Monsters

Characters: administrator, me

I was applying for citizenship of some sort, and I sat down at a desk with a paper to fill out my information. I kept losing the paper, and picking up other papers, until there was a heap of papers on my desk. An administrative person walked by and shook her head.
administrator: "You shouldn't get lost in the paperwork. Be careful and take it one page at a time."
me: (shrugging) "It's not my fault. It seems like your papers are breeding here on the desk as we speak. Why...just look!"
The papers started heaping up, and I felt I was causing this telekinetically. At this point I was feeling a bit cocky, so I directed my attention to a nearby bookshelf.
me: "This whole place is a disaster, your books don't even stay on the shelves!!"
A book jumped off the shelf and I guided it so it slammed up against a nearby support beam and then went flying back the other direction. Then I made another book jump up and hit the beam from the other side. People seemed to take that in stride, so I walked around pulling off a few other interesting tricks...like getting a door to lock and barricade itself so some people couldn't get out of a room.
It seemed like I was then eaten by a herd of giant fuzzy dragon-looking things, though it was hard to tell.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
