True Story

Someone at the work cafeteria today was complaining that the faucet was broken.

“It doesn’t work,” she said.

Turns out, there’s a subtle shift in some obscure, alien-originated technology we’ve adopted for Earth use.  I think the key is this: if it doesn’t work with a twist, try a pull.  The scary thing is, she’s been working here longer than I have, so I really want to know: how has she survived more than six months without a drink of water?  Does she usually lap it from the toilet?

I’d love to include things like this in my writing — but no one would believe me.
