225. Monsters Like Long, Tedious, Dramatic Countdowns
The phone rings and the creepy voice on the other end tells me I have 7 days to live. Um, is that how this works? Shouldn’t you kill me now? I mean, I’ve seen other monster movies, and they always die right away. What’s up with waiting a week? I don’t get it.
I guess that means tomorrow it will be 6 days?
Well, I’ll be off now. I have to fill up a whole week and make it count before I die.
