In the Egyptian Exhibit there is a real mummy set under glass. It has always freaked me out but its one of those things where you have to look. I approach it slowly and peek down at the glass. The glare from the overhead lights is kind of strong and reflects just right in my eyes so that I'm blinded for a second. Yellowness, then orange spots, then blue, then I can see again. I refocus my eyes and peer through the glass. It's David staring at me! I can smell what was on my shirt now, it's like my sense of smell ten minutes behind the rest of me. Chowder! Darkness.
