Dear past self,

Look, I know the forest is a great place to escape from people, but maybe don’t go in there for a while, seeing as I got these nasty cuts from it. Anyways, I know COVID-19 has struck hard, and it is tough not to be with your friends as much anymore, but it gets better — as society opens up so will your friends. Just yesterday a “feesh” talked to me, it was weird. It said, “I MUST CONSUME ALL AND ONCE I HAVE DONE THAT THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT, NOTHING!” So that was weird.

Future self

As you can see, this seems harmless at first, but when it was read under close inspection, a time paradox was caused that summoned fifty creatures we have dubbed “talking feesh.” In conclusion, this is a very dangerous item that could potentially destroy the universe as we know it.
