When your dad takes you to the game, he tells you about all the players he grew up with. Some of them are coaches now. Or play-by-play announcers. Or endorsing various products.

11/20/2017
More
Everybody on the whole cell block was dancing to the Jail House Rock. Except for Bob and Joe. They were doing the Tango. I’m not sure how they managed to get the rose to pass between their mouths.

Don’t you hate it when you’re stuck in line at the grocery store behind some idiot? They try to use a check, or argue over coupons or something.

Smoke em if you’re got em

11/8/2017
More
Sure, Fred says some weird things, and some people ask what he’s smoked today. Fred doesn’t smoke. Or use those electronic cigarette things.

Medic

When a soldier is wounded, the first thing that he calls out for isn’t his mother or his wife… he calls for a medic. Unless, of course, his mother is secretly disguised as the company medic.

Unhappy Landings

11/6/2017

Some of the paratroopers fell into the sea and drowned. Others were dropped too low, or their parachutes failed to open. They hit the ground and splattered like bloody watermelons.

Rollback

Quantum computing made it possible for people to make backups of their lives and roll their existence back to a point in time.
