"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."
  • What.
  • 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.
