Back Me Up

Replaying the same life over again is such a drag

"Hold on, let me save." 

"What is that, a computer?" 

"No, it's a WD 2TB external hard drive. I just plug the USB 3.0 cable into my mouth like this and save my brain. Ih rehlleh gooh." 

"Wait, what? You're backing up your entire consciousness?" 

"Yah, ih cahe eh deh." 

"I can't understand you -- pull that cord out of your mouth." 

"In case I die. I don't want to have to go all the way back to my last autosave point, so I run a manual save on the My Book every few hours or so." 

"Like a video game?"

"Ha! I guess so, but those are modeled on real life, of course. Wait, Gerbreth, are you telling me you've never saved your game?" 

"No, that's absurd, why would I --"




"Where … where am I? 6th grade? The beginning of middle school?? Was this my last saved game? NOOOOOoooooooooooo!"
