sleepy

(no subject)

You find some weird stuff when cleaning out things you haven't touched in a long time. I've found several bus schedules from 1997, a computer magazine proudly proclaiming that they have the new Pentium 166 in stock (and at low low prices), and an ad for the new Space Quest game, which involves time travel.

You also find random things you've written in the past. Most of which I'm not too proud of. But here's something that made me laugh.

The two spirits floated in nothingness.
"That was the joke?"
"That's it."
"It wasn't very funny."
"Well, it needs some work. It's not finished yet."
"Great punchline, though. Totally unexpected."
"Thanks."
"Want some help rewriting it?"
"Sure!"
"I liked the first line."
"Okay. Write it in."
Words appeared in the void.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth . . .
