Chapter 6 New York
It was about 2 AM when I finally fell asleep after the long trip.
Shortly after, I was awakened suddenly by my roommate, Phillip, from Alabama. Phillip was seated on the edge of his bed screaming at the top of his lungs. I stood up quickly and turned the lights on. Dancers ran in from the other rooms wondering what was going on.
Phillip continued screaming, and made strange, jerky movements with his head. We all thought he had gone mad until suddenly, an inch-long insect, with fluttering wings, crawled out of Phillip’s ear! It had been buzzing inside his head.
That was my first night in the United States. Phillip wasn’t mad. As a matter of fact, he was a really nice guy with a cynical sense of humor and always ready for a fun time.
