It’s 6:15 in the morning. Terry’s alarm clock is screaming its high-pitched, pulsating sounds across the room. Terry, barely opening his eyes, checks his clock. That’s it, 6:15.

And today? Today is the day Terry has been “unliving” his life for for the past two years. His stomach turns over and begins to churn.
