A few weeks ago I noticed that the time displayed on my laptop is different from the time on my phone. There was a two-minute difference. I tried to ignore it for a while, but the time discrepancy kept growing. Now there’s a four-minute difference. I don’t know why. Maybe it has something to do with black holes, vortexes, or aliens, but there’s definitely something spooky happening. I know it’s my laptop that’s wrong because my phone and tablet show the same time. It’s kind of weird because laptop, phone, and tablet are all Apple products and they are all on the same Wi-Fi network. My laptop thinks that it’s in the future. It could be. It’s hard to tell. A four-minute window into the future isn’t much to go on. And even if it was in the future, a four-minute window isn’t much help. I need at least ten minutes if I’m going to save the world. I’ve thought about this too much.
