A Day in the Life, Part 1. After Work
Faster, Faster, c’mon c’mon. The car’s treads were slick from the rain, it was dark, the sky was debating whether or not to clear up or not. C’mon move dammit! Turn signal on, switch lanes, accelerate, cop?, no you’re fine, go go. Who knew 3 miles could take so long? Phone lights up, “You coming?”, They’re waiting for you. 9 people, stopping their lives for you. Hurry, hurry. You can’t disappoint them. Driving with one knee as a quick, “yep, be there soon”, is typed out and sent.
Pull into the driveway, shhhhhhh, slowly open the door. They’re asleep. Pad swiftly up the stairs, grab a coke and water from the minifridge, sit.
Power, the Dell icon lights up as the machine awakens. Uniform is stripped off, basketball shorts and a T will suffice, the lingering smell of ice cream and cleaner still exists on the body and clothing, fuck it. The machine roars to life as the 700 Watt power supply activates the machine. Half a second is all it needs to ask for your password to log in, another half second and you’re in. Mumble, Chrome, WoW Client. 3 swift clicks is all it takes. Kid Cudi, Macklemore or Ratatat plays in the background login information is hastily typed. “Sorry I’m late guys, thanks for waiting”. Mixtures of “waddup!”, “hey hey” and “about damn time”, jokingly of course, resound through the headset. Finally…….she speaks, “Well we can’t kill this bitch without you!”. Grin, They waited for you.
