“One who is capable of anything if you keep him at arm’s length, and who fails completely if you let him come closer to you.”

The mirage oasis not only boasted of friendly talking palm trees, and water jets projecting scented bubbles in each of the pools, but also of a corndog vendor who allegedly sold snow cones flavored strawberry, lemon, and blue, during the summer seasons. Upon arrival at the oasis, however, we were greeted by a tepid grey swimming pool full of algae and a shirtless man trying to scoop out the floating dead lizards from the water’s surface. He wasn’t even a handsome shirtless man, either; he had a hairy belly and hairy feet. There were also no corndogs in sight.
