Disciples of The Leader Otis,
Brother Henry here. You may recall that about a year ago here at The Cult of Otis we had a run-in with an odd, boomeranging yawn. Actually, Brother Oliver and Leader Otis felt the brunt of its effects. I only caught the tail end of it and I wasn’t even sure what had happened until The Leader told me about it.
Even after that brief encounter, I had no idea how dangerous a yawn boomerang can really be… until yesterday, that is. Let me tell you what happened.
It all started when I was sitting on the bench below the front window. I was just relaxing and minding my own business.
Suddenly, I had an overpowering urge to yawn. So I did. It felt perfectly natural. It also made sense because I was just getting ready for a nap.
I completed the yawn and felt myself start to relax a little more. My eyelids drooped. A nap was imminent.
Suddenly, the yawn came back! It hit me hard in the face causing my jaws to fly open. I was so surprised, I tried to yowl, but it just came out as an extremely loud yawning sound!
As I was recovering from the yawn, I stood up. I thought maybe I could run away before the yawn bounced off of something and hit me again.
I didn’t move fast enough. I was hit in the face once again!
Knocked back into a sitting position, I looked around to see if I could spot what the yawn was bouncing off of.
I looked to my right. I faintly saw my reflection in the window a split second before the yawn hit me again in the face. It had been bouncing off the glass!
At this point, I jumped off of the bench and down onto the floor in the hope that I could avoid the next bounce of the yawn boomerang. I thought if I got out of the direct line of fire, I would be safe. I thought wrong.
So Says Brother Henry
