Daylight Day 31: S.A.D.

“Can you believe it’s my wedding month already?” trilled Mum. Dad and I exchanged a glance of woe. I caught myself and checked for sparkles.

Still not EMO. How can my hair be so green without falling out? Maybe I’ve become an anti-EMO. If only I could believe that.

“S.A.D” is a genuine medical condition. It stands for “Seasonal Affective Disorder” and it happens to people who are (otherwise) mentally healthy. Basically it means that prolonged cloudy weather (eg in Forks) causes temporary mental illness. Affected people sleep more, eat more, and basically act as if they’re hibernating.

But. . . is it merely a seasonal disorder, or have they been bitten by an EMO?

It is far more prevalent in cloudy countries (Finland, etc) where the EMOs prefer to live. Coincidence? I think not.
