You don’t have to be a spiritual person to believe in signs. Like when covering up mental health issues with a roofie story so God makes you slam your U-Haul into your new apartment building front portico.
Mischa Barton had to move out of her old apartment in West Hollywood because her silly neighbors kept telling TMZ how she’s often screaming like a lunatic. Barton promptly plowed into the carport of her new condo building hanging a good eight inches lower than her moving truck clearance. No worries. They’re probably replacing that thing on the regular. EMTs arrived to the scene and immediately asked Barton if she was “mentally okay”, you know, like you do when there’s been a traffic accident. Wow, nasty fender bender, will you be needing a straitjacket? Obviously, they’ve interacted with her before.
The upside of people devolving into mental illness is the obvious markers they lay out before shit gets deadly. We’re probably still two to three steps away from a living creature being lit on fire. This would be the time a normal woman’s friends and family would call for an intervention and an indefinite stay at an inpatient psychiatric facility. In Barton’s case, it will be publicists and scheming relatives conferring on how to spin her crazy as more socially positive messages to young women on the dangers of vehicle height clearances. If I’m Mischa Barton’s dog, I’m making a run for it. Your fur is a natural accelerant.
