My mama has been shut in doors for almost thirty seven years. She thanks her lucky stars that there weren’t any complications with my birth, and Kenny’s, because then she’d a had to get on outta there. She blames it on electro hypersensitivity but it’s not. It’s agoraphobia through and through. She has the script that she rattles off, “I have a disorder where the electricity fields from the wires snaking all over the damn place give me crippling headaches and heartburn”. Kenny and I roll our eyes and she doesn’t even notice cuz she’s so committed to the story. She’s lost everyone, you know. Except for us. The house smells like a chicken coop.
