Episode 29: This Morning.


When last we left our intrepid hero he was realizing that it’s far easier to write these post the more frequently he does them. When lots of time passes he feels compelled to write about everything, which is just not practical. He theorizes that he smaller window of time being chronicled, the easier and more entertaining the post.

This morning, our hero was roused from a sound sleep by the evil Alarm Monster. He defeated him with a single swat to the Monster’s snooze bar. The Monster inexplicably re-awoke 10 minutes later. Our hero silenced the Monster again, but this time permanently.

After lying in bed for 5 minutes to recover from the intense struggle that dispatched the Alarm Monster, our hero got up and prepared for the day. But this was no ordinary day for which he was preparing. Later that day, in fact so much later that day it would actually be tomorrow, our hero was to board a special jet plane and fly to cosmopolitan Detroit. Upon arriving early the next morning, our hero would then drive to a secret location in Southwestern Michigan for a meeting of his immediate superhero clan.

Unfortunately, our hero had been hit by Not-Entirely-Finished-Packing Man. He hurriedly threw anything he thought he needed into his suitcase as a counter attack, but the damage was done. He was fated to leaving the house without at least 1 or 2 things he’d meant to bring.

By the time he’d finished packing, battled with Dishes-That-Need-Washing Man and Removing-Every-Scrap-Of-Exposed-Food-Material-From-All-Surfaces-Lest-The-Fruit-Fly-Infestation-Continue Woman, he was racing out the door close to a half an hour late.

And so it was: He arrived at work 30 minutes late. And so it shall be recorded for all eternity in the electronic sheets of his time. And so he will stay at work until 5:30 to make up the lost time for time cannot be lost. And happy are those that read this for their children and their children’s children shall enjoy bountiful harvests all of their days.

What did our hero forget?
Will he get sufficient sleep on the red-eye?
And most importantly…
Will he have to wait long at airport security?

Find out the answers to these important questions and more in the next episode of
Our Intrepid Hero
