Life isn’t a highway

Day 13 of the 100 Word Project

This is your life.

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.
