You wake up one day and the world has changed. It’s the premise of a million science fiction stories. And sometimes, in the real world, it actually happens. It happened to me today.
I don’t know what happens next. We can’t plan this out, like an author plotting a story. Real life can give you a totally unsatisfactory ending, a tragedy without meaning or unearned happiness that arises from luck rather than anything the protagonist did.
