Should I also mention that Dextrometorfan (a very common active component of cough medicine) is a psychoactive drug with a mild potential for addiction?

You turn on the radio one morning to find another one of those Rap songs where every 4th word is a swear. Naturally the Radio bleeps it out, but you realize that it sounds familiar. You realize that the rappers are speaking in Morse code.

Your eyes widen as you swerve over onto the shoulder of the expressway, nearly hitting a Jeep Cherokee in the process. It didn’t matter to you. Frantically searching the glove compartment, the backseat, and your purse, you finally find a small notepad and a pen with a low ink cartridge. You listen closely to the radio, and begin to scribble down as much as you can. You realize it was merely a pattern.

. . / – .– — / – .– — / ... .. ..-. – -.–

Unfortunately for you, you aren’t very well versed in translating Morse code, merely recognizing it. You reach into your purse to grab your phone, but after a moment of searching, you realize you had left it at home before you left for work. “God damnit,” you mutter. You’re more than halfway to your office, and you’re already running late due to the fact that that you decided to follow some whim and jot down some cryptic message from a provocative rapper. Concluding that it would probably be best for you to mosey to work, you pull back onto the expressway and try to make it to work on time.

Upon arriving at work, you ask any coworker in sight if they know Morse code. Nobody seems to, and some don’t even know what Morse code is. You slump your shoulders in disappointment and head over to your desk, when suddenly, the quiet, mouse-like secretary clears her throat and says, “Excuse me, I know Morse code!”

You turn around with the same wide eyes as before. “You do!?” you ask vigorous excitement, which seems to startle the young woman.

“Yes,” she says, “when I was younger, I planned on joining the navy, so I taught it to myself.” You feel a bit sorry for her, that she wound up as a mere secretary instead of a naval officer, but that feeling of pity didn’t stop you from being grateful for the lucky coincidence of her knowing Morse code. You show her the pattern.

. . / – .– — / – .– — / ... .. ..-. – -.–

“That’s all there is?” she asks, furrowing her brow.

“Yeah,” you shrugged, “it just kept repeating that over and over again. What does it say?”

“One, two, two, fifty.”

Your heart sinks a little. “What is that? What does that mean, is it like a phone number or house address or something?”

The secretary shrugs. “I’m really sorry, I don’t know. It’s too short to be a phone number, but beyond deciphering it, I’m afraid I can’t help you.”

You nod slowly, and though you understand, you are still not at all satisfied. You go to sit at your desk. 1 2 2 50. The sequence plays over and over in your head all day, and needless to say, your curiosity an wonderment got the best of you. It was not a very productive work day.

You head home, and the same damned song plays on the radio. You shake your head as if that would make the song stop, then decide to plug 12250 into your GPS to see if there are any autofill results. None. You become increasingly frustrated.

When you get home, your daughter is sitting at the kitchen table, working on homework. She runs up to you and gives you a big hug, and asks about your day at work. You put on a fake smile and sigh. “Interesting,” you say— no doubt sugarcoating the intense excitement, disappointment, and confusion.

“Will you help me with my homework? I have to memorize something for my history class tomorrow.”

“Of course, doll! What are you memorizing?”

She hands you a laminated sheet of paper. “Roman numerals!”

You glance over the page, your eyes quickly darting from one, to two, to fifty.

It dawns on you. You’d recognize this pattern anywhere.

I got so bored, I made a hypothetical tropical cyclone WIKIPEDIA PAGE STYLE in which the storm will absolutely annihilate my place in the next couple of months.



Typhoon Mitag

Typhoon Mitag, also known as Super Typhoon Ramon in the Philippines, was the most intense tropical cyclone and the most intense landfalling tropical cyclone ever recorded in modern meteorological history. Upon making landfall in the Philippines, it caused cataclysmic damage on the entirety of Luzon, particularly on the nation’s capital, Manila. It is also the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, and the deadliest tropical cyclone since Cyclone Nargis in 2008 killing more than 10,000 people on that country alone. It is also the most destructive typhoon on record and also caused the worst financial and economical crisis in the Philippines which costs at around ₱2.78 trillion PHP ($52.9 billion USD) making it the costliest Pacific typhoon, and the costliest non-Atlantic hurricane on record.

Got a vinyl record storage box. It came in a much bigger box. Took me a couple tries to figure out how to fold it but now it’s fine.

If I die in this world who will know something of me?
I am lost, no one knows there’s no trace of my yearning.
(But I must carry on nothing worse can befall.
All my fears, all my tears tell my heart there’s a hole.)


I wear a void not even hope a downward slope is all I see.
(As long as breath comes from my mouth I may yet stand the slightest chance.
A shaft of light is all I need to cease the darkness killing me.)
