Hello. Please, calm down. Do not be afraid. I am your Doctor, Dr. Hereswhatidontget. You’ve been in a terrible accident. We had to place you into a comatose state for your body to heal itself. I’m afraid it’s been seven years since then. A lot has changed in the world as you once knew it. Due to rapid advances in medical science we were able to construct you a new body. It should feel just like your old one, but it will take some time to adjust. While you rest, we’ve gathered some books on what has changed while you’ve been sleeping:
- Office Ladies
- Constant Connectivity
- Too Old to Be Out in Public
Party time! WHO HOO! Here’s some cake and cookies. Oh, and some brownies and a couple of pies too. What? You were expecting some actual food? No, just some sweets, a little bit won’t hurt you. See the streamers and the cardboard letters strung up? I’m head of the party planning committee, and those mean it’s party time, so slap a smile on that face! I’d actually much rather be at home with a box of wine, my favorite shower head, and my cats, but what can you do! Since I can’t have that I need the rest of you to have that sugar crash and be miserable like me! One of us. One of us. One of us.
Goggles? Check. Nose plug? Check. Ear Plugs? Check. Arm floaties? Check. Inner tube? Check. Congrats you nerd! You’re ready to swim! He looks like a loser, but damn it if he’s not right. Water in the ears, nose, eyes? All suck. Terribly. Yet people willingly submit themselves to it. No idea why. Why turn a survival tactic into a recreational activity? I’d rather jump out of a plane. Yes. Really.
ARE YOU READY TO UPDATE? YOU NEED TO CONFIRM YOUR EMAIL SO I CAN UPDATE. THE WIFI DROPPED FOR 0.023 SECONDS? I'M FREAKING OUT, MAN! WHAT DO I DO? HOLD ON, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! I LOST CONNECTION OH GOD. HELP ME FIND IT! MY MOM’S GONNA KILL ME. IT’S BACK. OKAY. CRISIS AVERTED. NOW IT’S TIME TO UPDATE! DON’T YOU CLICK THAT X. HA! FOOLED YOU, IT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING! YOU’VE GOT TO POSTPONE IT. NO CANCELATIONS BUDDY, YOU’RE STUCK WITH ME.
Why are you driving? You can barely see. You can barely hear. You can barely move. You can barely react to stimuli. ALL THINGS YOU NEED TO BE A COMPETENT DRIVER. Why are you in public? You’re getting your death coughs everywhere. You sound like you’re actually dying. You probably are. Go home. Have someone feed you some jello and get out of my general area. If someone wants to see you, they’ll go to you. Watch your stories and try to enjoy what time you have left alone please.
