Well, it happened. It actually came true. I broke time. 9:26am, stuck for who knows how long. This phenomenon could vanish within a few minutes, or months could go by and we would still be stuck in this rift. Some turn to a higher power for gratitude, others turn to day drinking. The colloquial advice? Just enjoy it while it lasts. Non-stop partying, bottomless brunches, buffet lunches, regular dinners, sleeping through two episodes of the sun, anything goes.
Meanwhile, in this blinding white room, I just clutched her hand tightly, and thanked that higher power for the extra time.
