I really connected with Hal's recent blog post Untitled Document: 23-8-67 (based on a true story). Here's a little snippet that made me laugh out loud:
After the...I don't know, billionth try, he paused and closely examined the paper again. “Maybe if I wrote down what I need to do...” he began, reaching over for a pen.
I winced. “But the instructions are right there on that paper.”
“Yeah, but I can add some things to make it easier.”
“Well...okay,” I said skeptically.
My grandpa proceeded to underline phrases such as “three times,” “turn,” and “ght, then stop at.”
Whatever works, I thought.
