3rd Report from Occidental Park 9/19/14

After petting this creature, Dr Owning’s sensible shoes melted onto her pantyhose.

After finding oneself on the “Perception of Time-Speed in Relation to Distance from Optimal Position” graph (X=How fast does time seem to be moving?, Y=How far are you from where you want to be?) :
