“You’ll never guess what I saw today. A Google camera car,” Anita announced as she walked into work.
“What did you do?” asked Marcy.
“What do you mean?”
“People do crazy stuff for the camera. Pranks and stuff. Some people even dress up in costumes,” explained Marcy.
“How do they know where it will be?”
Marcy looked at Anita quizzically. “I don’t know. Maybe they’ve learned to read the Matrix.”
“You lost me,” said Anita.
“You know, followed the glitches in the Matrix.”
“What does that have to do with Google cars?”
“It’s all part of the system,” said Marcy.
“Or maybe there’s a website that tracks these their movement,” said Anita.
“Don’t tell me you believe in coincidences, deja vu and stuff like that,” said Marcy.
“I think you’re a glitch in the Matrix.”
Marcy got dreamy eyed. “That would be so awesome.”
Anita shook her head.
“What?” asked Marcy.
“You realize The Matrix was only a movie.”
“Says you. Don’t mock my beliefs,” said Marcy, with her hands on her hips.
“None of this makes sense. How did we get from the Google car to the Matrix?”
“If you believe that we’re all part of the Matrix, then everything makes sense,” said Marcy.
“That’s why you’re confused,” said Marcy. She looked at her watch. “We’ve got a cabinet meeting in five minutes. He got to hurry.”
Anita and Marcy gathered their satchels and headed for the door.
“Remind me how you got elected,” said Anita.
Marcy winked at Anita. “Are you kidding? In my riding, I was the only sane choice.”
