The bizarro world

In the DC comics universe, a planet called “Htrae” (“Earth”
spelled backwards) is populated with bizarre versions of
superheroes. A Seinfeld episode made the idea of this
Bizarro World popular, where the characters encountered
their opposite selves. Craft a scene in which you meet an
opposite version of yourself — or a story in a bizarre, backwards

One Bizarre Day

I should have noticed it right away. When I woke up this morning, my clock was ticking backwards. I chucked it up to needing a new one and threw it away. And then when I stepped into my shower, instead of the water pouring down upon me, it flowed upward. That was quite a shock! Still, I just figured there was something wrong with the pipes and went on about my day.

Outside, cars ran up buildings, not across roads. Planes flew upside down and for that matter, so did the birds. It was proving to be an exhausting day. I finally figured out how to get to my job, but the elevators ran down instead of up and I almost missed my floor. Inside my office was the strangest thing. People walked upside down while I crouched by the door. How could I even get to my desk as it hung from the ceiling? Finally, I closed my eyes. I couldn’t handle any more of this bizarre world.

Next thing I knew, I woke up. There on my bedside table was the alarm clock, ticking normally again. Had it all been a dream?

  2. Hmm, maybe a dream, maybe a temporary dimensional shift. Yeeks, craziness has ensued! Nice story 🙂

  3. You mean this world’s not bizarre enough?
