Oh... wonderful. So true. It IS Stephen King, who is all darkness and horror for the most part, so I guess that's why the "or you don't" part is in there. Or maybe it nods at people who are forever changed and can't escape the blue hell. Either way, I love this find! You always find the best things.
Yes, this is good. And yes, some people can't escape, some people opt out of life, and thankfully, most of us come out the other side.
