Life isn’t a highway
Day 13 of the 100 Word Project
I was eating Thai food with my coworkers to celebrate my boss’s birthday when I had déjà vu.
On a whim, I opened Facebook on my phone and checked my memories. There, I saw it: a post indicating we had been doing this exact thing on the same day last year.
I was forced to stare into the void. It stared back. And I was all like, “Dude, I thought life was a highway.”
The void said, “No dummy. It’s a hamster wheel.”
Sometimes, I worry that we’re just doomed to spin our wheels. Then, I have a beer and forget all about it — until the next strange déjà vu.
