Scripting News: “Assume you saw the news”.

When I got back to work at 3:46PM this afternoon, I got a message from Kyle after checking in: “Assume you saw the news.”


The change in body chemistry was palpable. I assume this is a moment I’m going to remember.

I had not seen the news.

I went to Twitter, but not before imagining what might have happened. I formed a theory. North Korea had destroyed a Japanese city. Or maybe an American city. We’re on the verge of World War III.

I found out quickly. Twitter is good for that.

I went back and said: “Wow that was some strong medicine.”

The imagination is a powerful machine.
