I was home sick from school, and it could have been a really nice day. It was bright and sunny outside, and I was relaxing on the couch in my pajamas. I could hear my grandparents chatting in the kitchen as they ate lunch. The front door was open, there was a nice breeze. I should have been watching Saved by the Bell and enjoying myself and a day of freedom from the 4th grade. Instead, I was watching Pet Sematary and I was breathless and terrified and probably about to keel over from fright.
