Anxious Girl Walks Into A Grocery Store
By Monique Madrid / April 13 2020
The inside of my mask is already moist and I haven’t even left my garage. Every droplet of possibly contaminated spittle blocked from getting on others. At least that’s the hope. The store is just down the street, not even five minutes away. Yet it’s a whole world away. I’m filled with doubt. Am I being irresponsible? Should I stay home? Breathe in. Breathe out.
My sunglasses fog up. I haven’t been in my car in weeks. Do I even remember how to drive?Did I wipe down the steering wheel enough? Can the virus live here that long, like a serial killer hiding in the back waiting to jump out and have his way with me? Calm down. Breathe in. Breathe out.
The Miseducation of Lauren Hillard
A comedy inspired by true events. A born-again teen attending a tiny five-room Christian school in the 90s begins to question everything she’s known (especially about sex) as she balances teen awkwardness with living a Jesus-approved life through her surreal and fantastical lens.
