Not In My World

“I used to love the Transformers.”

“Yeah, me too. I refuse to see the movie though.”

“You’ve never seen it?”

“Nope. I’m not buying into any of that Optimus Prime dies bullshit.”

“What do you mean bullshit? He fucking dies.”

“Not in my world.”

“But it was a defining moment of our youth, when we see that even our heroes aren’t invincible.”

“Yeah, whatever, I didn’t buy into it.”

“This is why you’re so fucking self-confident - because in your world Optimus Prime is still alive and leading the Autobots.”

“Exactly.”

“And in my world, Optimus Prime is dead.”


Expect rain tomorrow.
