Bob: “Um, can I take off the blindfold now? I’m getting a little uncomfortable. Is this polyester?

Agent.Valenia: “Nylon.”

Bob: “Please! You’ve tortured me enough with this grade of fabric! What do you want? Money?”

Agent.Rios: “Why do you all ask that?”

Agent.Valenia: “Take it off, Rios.”

Agent.Rios: “I don’t want to touch the itchy nylon.”

Agent.Valenia: “It was the only historic cloth in Archaeological-Salvageables-Mart.”

Agent.Rios: “You were overcharged, weren’t you?”

Agent.Valenia: “It’s a priceless relic!”

Bob: “The blindfold’s making my eyes sting guys.”

Agent.Rios: “Actually, it’s the air.”

Agent.Valenia: “Not to overwhelm you, Bob.”

Bob: “Not overwhelming at all that you’re KIDNAPPING ME!”

Agent.Rios: “You’re not Mr Innocent yourself!”

Bob: “Please, I’m allergic to nylon!”

Agent.Rios: “Liar.”

Agent.Valenia: “We examined your medical records prior.”

Bob: “Where am I? Is there a restroom here? Preferably sanitized.”

Agent.Rios: “Ha! Not by your antiquated high standards buddy.”

Agent.Valenia: “Welcome, officially, to the future.”

Bob: “I’m… the first-”

Agent.Rios: “Not the first time traveler.”

Bob: “Why am I here? I did nothing wrong. Promise.”

Agent.Valenia: “Really?”

Bob: “Fine, I’m a fraud! I pretend I’m a student to get a discounted gym membership… and yoga classes… and coffee…”

Agent.Rios: “What?”

Bob: “What? I mean, haha, joking!”

Agent.Valenia: “This is about your two hour showers and aversion to recycling.”

Bob: “Oh, phew.”

Agent.Rios: “Bob, you’re the reason for all this!”

Agent.Valenia: “Take the blindfold off, Rios.”

(Bob’s blindfold’s removed, he looks outside the window.)

Bob: “Yikes… You know, time travel’s catastrophic according to, like, every Hollywood post-apocalyptic rom-com.”

Agent.Valenia: “Yes, we studied that source material for school.”

Agent.Rios: “Time travel exams… Your fault too.“

Agent.Valenia: “You could’ve helped prevent this, and your exposure to nylon cloth this morning!”

Bob: “It’s morning? Dang it’s glum.”

Agent.Valenia: “Little things add up, Bob.”

Bob: “But, I’m slammed. Gym, yoga, coffee meetings… Ok, ok. We’ll see.”

Agent.Valenia: “Hmm.”

Bob: “Dark… Can I put my blindfold back on now?

    Sharing a Post

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
