WHAT'S THE MATTER?

Mysteries of the universe?
Hell, I’d settle for solving the mystery of my office.
I swear there’s a black hole that sucks things in!
It’s the only way I can explain how things disappear…
Right before my very eyes!
I’ll be sitting at my desk…
Looking at papers and such…
And just when I need to do something…
With said paper or such…
WHOOSH!
The black hole sucked it in…
And said paper or such is gone!,
Disappeared!
Finite!
And I haven’t moved one inch, one iota.
How can that be?
Unless…
Said paper or such fell into…
Duh Duh Duuuuh!
A black hole!
And this black hole would explain…
The gnawing, nagging feeling…
That I really have written the perfect query letter…
And I do have a signed contract with an agent…
And my novels have sold millions
But because of this black hole…
Time has warped…
And that’s why I’m still sitting here…
In my office…
Looking for said paper and such.
Duh Duh Duuuuh!

Always, Em-Musing

Hm, that black hole sounds like a good premise for a mystery novel, with the two alternate lives entwining ...

Hm, I like your way of thinking...(And by the way, that's happened to me too in my cubicle. Papers, just gone. I'm a black-hole believer!)

Sounds like I've seen that black hole before. ;) Step back into the light and quick!
