  •  bank heist - failed author - time travel. (3+ / 0-)

    "Look, nine years from now it is 2017, and the world you know ceases to exist. America is on lockdown. These people with Bush stickers on their cars? They're driving around in armored vehicles now shooting guns "keeping the peace" for profit. We've got drones bombing people in America. Grocery stores are behind barbed wire. They are burning food. That is when I am from. I have been sent back to stop the banksters from ruining the planet, again."

    "Is this one of your 'projects'?", she said, doing the super-quote hand thingy,"are you 'in character'?" Her arms never moved.

    The hand gestures in the air and the head tilt pissed me off. I kind of lost it, "In three months there will be a bank heist the likes of which you have never seen, and it will set in motion a hostile take over of humanity. I have to stop it."

    Her brow furrowed, "They sent a failed author back in time to save the world? That's a great plotline."

    I smiled, "I know, right," she always knew how to talk me down.

    "John Cusack could play you."

    I missed her now more than ever. Hard to believe that in five years, or four years ago, take your pick...
