Tin Foil Hat
I have made a terrible mistake.
I foolishly opted for the Super Enhanced Audio Potion. I just wanted to hear what people were whispering about, behind my back.
Now my hearing is so accute, I hear thoughts. Terrible thoughts! You wouldn’t believe the vile ideas bouncing around in people’s brains.
I can’t bear to be out in public anymore. I can hear thoughts from every head that comes near me. It’s chaos.
My family is the worst. You think people love you? Ha! They’re wondering how much longer you’re going to live and who will get the property.
Now I understand why people wear tin-foil hats and become hermits.
As soon as this potion wears off, I’m going to order the Super Enhanced Visual Potion. If it’s as powerful as the audio potion, I should be able to see people naked.
