BLURB

Can you see her?
She is a fine specimen. A perfect example. She treats every object as though a sacred artifact, a token of her irrational attachment to order and rule.
Shhh... Don’t startle her, please. She is in a trance. You may not know, but this fine creature has just found herself a monument of her disorder. What kind? One that many women wrongly wish their husbands would have. You ask why wrongly? Google it. This is not Wikipedia.
Do you see how eager she is? The meds stopped working.
Don’t interrupt her! She is counting now.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
A brief pause… she is thinking. Unsure and panicked she repeats her routine.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
And she won’t stop till it’s done and dusted. [Weronika Nossowicz]
