SF Drabble #79 “Sliding Towards Bethlehem”

I’ve been in this alternate Earth a while. The machine is hidden in the garage, where I usually put it. The car is a Lexus this time. I’ve never heard of the brand, but it seems nice: upscale, but not flashy.

There are some weird differences. There’s a thing called an internet that everybody uses; it’s apparently some sort of repository of stored information. And there’s actual nudity on the television. And a lot more channels. Also, apparently the cold war is over.

So far I like it here. The Day is approaching, if the world doesn’t end, I’ll stay.
