It’s 5:30pm

It’s 5:30pm, the evening news is about to air. You just got home from your grueling 45 minute shift walking the neighborhood dogs. Scooby really pulled your arm hard today. You think to yourself “I hope I didn’t strain my shoulder” as you grab some ice and sit down at your computer. You log onto madghosts and open your massively un-successful online community. A grin comes across your face. As you do your usual checks, you notice an outcry coming from your community. You gasp. “Why?”. You see that they are strongly opposing your idea to be interviewed by the Fox News Network. They all make valid points. “You’ll be made a joke.”, “No don’t let the real world see us.”, “Please prepare.”. You think to yourself, “I got this.” You bring out your scratch-pad full of arguments and counter- arguments. That year of debate class in 9th grade prepared you. “Fuck”, you realize that it’s empty and you didn’t write down a single coherent thought, nontheless create one. No matter, you receive a Zoom message from a Fox representative “Live in 30 seconds”. Inhale, exhale. You’ve waited your whole life for this moment, this is YOUR moment. “Joining me now is the person who operates this anti-work group, Doreen Ford…”
