SF Drabble #267 “Product Placement”

I subscribed to Reynolds Obbey’s lifestream. You know the actor, the one who played President Webber in that period piece about 20’s post-exceptionalist American politics? He was so good in that, made even that gasbag likeable, in an Andrew Shepherd sort of way. So earlier today, he was thinking about getting some Italian, kept imagining big steaming plates of fettuccini and soft, warm breadsticks; I started jonesing for some myself.

But then I remembered: Obbey’s lifestream is sponsored by Olive Garden. It wasn’t his real thoughts, they were just adding it in. You’ve gotta be real careful about those things.
