Another Me!

I had my bags all packed, so to speak. All that I really had with me in my cell was my back-up pair of glasses. But I had them secure in their case and I was ready to go.

"So when am I heading to Hacknor?" I asked Candace.

"Oh, you're not going." She replied.

"I was flabbergasted. Well, maybe that's an exaggeration. I was just regular gasted. "What do you mean? I made a deal with The Company! I compete in Last Gladiator Standing 2 and they don't revoke my pension."

"Guess they're revoking your pension then!" She said. Her mouth grew into a wide smile and she started to laugh. "So much for your yachting dreams!" She left.

I was confused. Why would Primatech cancel our agreement? What happened to their sense of integrity?

Then Thompson entered. "Bennet, ignore her. You're still competing in the competition."

"Oh, good! I was worried there for a second." I picked up my glasses case. "So when do I leave?"

"You already have."

"Whaaaa???"

"Have a look for yourself." Thompson flipped on the InterN.E.T. There I was. Mingling!

"But how is that possible?"

"Well, theoretically, it's not. I can't tell you the specifics, since it's classified. And you're no longer a level 5 paper salesman. But while you're winning the prize for The Company, we still need you here on Earth. We have unthinkable things to do still."

"Like what?"

"You'll see."

So your saying your going on LGS2 as an agent for someone? You have a hidden agenda? Alterior motives? And you wonder why people are suspicious of you.

See, I told you this was all so complex. See, time is like string, you can ball it all up or you can stretch it all out. No wait, time is like string cheese, it's a little salty but it's oh so good.

I wish I knew how to get a double, for me. I am so exhausted right now I could just drop. I'm blogging here. I'm blogging there. I'm trying to save the world. I'm trying to get elected to Congress. I'm trying to eventually be President. I'm trying to hide my illegitimate daughter. I'm trying to save Peter...God I need a nap.
