The 27 Stages of Mortification

stallwindowsThis is important, y’all. I want to clarify something I wrote in my show recap that, understandably so, y’all might have thought was just hyperbole on my part. But there actually ARE 27 stages of mortification.

It is possible to go through the entire process in about 6 seconds.

  1. Confusion as to why my body just did something my brain did not tell it to do
  2. Curiosity about whether I may be under the spell of a witch
  3. Or a body snatcher
  4. Or whether I am experiencing amnesia
  5. Decide amnesia is least likely
  6. Get control of rebellious/possessed/enthralled body
  7. Realize that what rebellious/etc. body just did is actually pretty bad
  8. Feel shame
  9. Feel remorse
  10. Crave doughnuts
  11. And beer
  12. Feel thirsty
  13. Get brain back on track, and tell body to get its shit together
  14. Sit tall
  15. Piercingly gaze forward
  16. Accept that body has made a mistake and that brain is a slacker
  17. Focus on the beer waiting for me at the end of all this
  18. No wait, brain, focus on the task at hand
  19. Attempt to accomplish task at hand
  20. Wonder what body looks like accomplishing the task at hand
  21. Wonder if people are watching me
  22. Confirm that people are indeed watching me
  23. Piercingly gaze forward again
  24. Suppress urge to scream and whimper
  25. Accept the difficulty of the situation and pursue it to its natural conclusion anyway
  26. Sigh
  27. Shrug shoulders and smile awkwardly

I imagine each stage is highly gif-able, too, possibly even exclusively with cat gifs, but I’m not that fancy.
