“Numb” is a short surreal story about a man’s bizarre day and how he just goes with it.
Carl is an ordinary man with an ordinary life. He is one of us. But his day is about to get a little unordinary. It starts with his morning coffee unexpectedly turning into some beer-like liquid. Then, as he opens the microwave for the leftover pizza he put in earlier, the bizarreness just continues.
Carl seems numb that he just rolls with all the surreal flow. But how are these bizarre occurrences any different from what’s happening in the world today? Carl is numb. But he is one of us.
