My eyelids slowly flutter open. I see a pale blue glow, it passes
through a thin layer of glass above me. Bands that I hadn't
noticed, click as they release my wrists and ankles. As I stretch
my fingers I hear a faint hissing noise.
With a loud "Pop" the glass imprisoning me haltingly lifts
A single question burns in my mind, "Who am I?"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

A sharp mechanical voice rattles out an indecipherable series of
what I assume are supposed to be words. Right at the end it clears
up enough for me to hear, "last .no.... occupation, constr...tion
Is it talking about me? Was I in construction management before I
went to sleep? What does that mean?
Sounds like I'd be pretty fulfilled by my work.

I attempt to step forward, my legs betray me and I nearly fall to
the floor. Or is it a deck? I've steadied myself immediately,
balancing on half my foot. Interesting, I guess I'm not
Looking around I realize my hand seems blurry. My vision doesn't
seem to be very clear. There is a compartment next to my .... bed?
It looks more like a pod. I'm starting to feel like I'm in a
science fiction movie. Hopefully it has lots of camera
In the compartment next to my pod I find. My glasses. And a cell
phone. I try to turn it on, no luck. Huh, I guess the battery is
dead. And I don't see a charger. I feel like I'm not the kind of
person who would forget my charger.
Oh hey, I almost missed that. A key. It has "22" carved into the
Well, now that I have my glasses on, this place looks even more
dreary. As much as I like blue skies, whose idea was blue emegency

As I look around I see a locker to my left. I move unsteadily
towards it, my legs still weak from my long nap. There is a locker
with the number 22. I look at the key, back at my pod and at the
locker. Seriously? Why'd I even have it locked? Well, let's see

The first thing I notice is a kindle. I pull it out then check the
charge. Looks like it's good to go.
Powering up the kindle I look through the directory, quietly
reading the titles to myself, "Song of Ice and Fire, The Wheel of
time, Animorphs, Star Wars Thrawn trilogy, Tigana, Trilisk, Essays
on feminism..... " I guess I have reading material for a
Once I set the kindle down I see a charger, which should work for
my cell phone and kindle. Inspecting the corridor I notice what
appears to be an outlet for my charger, next to the lockers.
After I start charging my phone, I continue investigating the
locker. I pull out a flash drive. As I reflexively move to put it
in my pocket, I realize, I don't have any pockets. I appear to be
wearing a jumpsuit. A comfy jumpsuit, kind of like a Stitch Onesie.
I tuck the flash drive into the sleeve of my jump suit.
As I look back to the locker I notice a tube. Mashed potatoes and
gravy. Sounds delicious. If it wasn't in a tube. I decide to try
some, I've never been afraid to try new food before. Hmm, not bad
for food from a tube.
After searching through the locker for a while, I've organized the
contents into several piles.
I have several food tubes. There are a lot of interesting variants.
There's butter chicken, rotisserie boar, the mashed potatoes and
gravy tube and teriyaki chicken tubes. Thankfully there's no sushi
tubes. Ugh, I don't even want to think about fish in a tube.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"Pay attention kid. It might not seem like much, but that
picture will remind you of where you come from. When you're out
there, alone in the black, knowing you're not alone is going to
feel mighty important."
I loop the bandoleer I found in the locker around my jump suit. I
strap on my cell phone and stash the charger. The key I tuck into
the bottom of my leg. A picture I found, of me with my friends,
goes under the jumpsuit, near my heart.
Adjusting my glasses, I grab a tube of butter chicken for the road
then set off to see what else I can find.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"There comes a time when we reach into the void which lies
within our soul. We retrieve from the void a fragment. A fragment

either be the weight which drowns us, or we can take that fragment,

to deal with the world. All because we reached into the
As I walk along the corridor, I reach a dead end. There's a small
window on the end of the corridor. As I peek curiously out the
window I realize....
I really need some mouth wash. 100 year bed breath, yikes.
As I gaze out the window I confirm what I suspected, I'm in space.
On some kind of station or ship. I can't really tell from
Turning around I walk back up the corridor the other direction.
Passing my pod, I realize the light seems to be getting dimmer.
Turning on my cell phone, I use the screen for illumination as I
delve deeper into the structure.
I find a dispensary for the food tubes in the next corridor.
Continuing on I notice a ladder leading to a hatch above me. I
climb the ladder, heave the hatch open, and poke my head into... a
On a typical Friday night I am

Ow, the light is nearly blinding here.
There are what appear to be controls spread around a comfortable
looking chair. I settle into the chair examining the controls. Some
are labeled, but most of the functions elude me.
God, I wish this place had a kitchen.
I find a lever that appears to control the blast shield. I pull it.
The blast shield pulls away so slow as to be painful. After a
minute I think I can see stars above and a deck below. I wait for
the blast door to reveal the ship I've awoken on. It looks solid,
elegant and a little beat up around the edges. I'm already in
I turn my attention back to the console. Now that I know it's a

There's someone else out there. I look at the readout, a couple of
interesting bios are available. Key traits: independence,
intelligence, confidence and sarcasm.
Suddenly a view screen flickers to life. Coming into focus is the
captain of another ship, which is itself on the cusp of visual
range. The captain speaks, her first words are ..........
