25 Random Lies About Me, issue one

As previously advertised, here are the 25 Random Lies About Me, presented as a serial.


1. Because I’m not good at physics, I’ve never built a time machine. My friend Phil Harrington built one on a whim one weekend in college.

After drinking too much I decided to try it out. As per the cliché, I thought I’d go back to kill Hitler.

I decided to go back to when he was a sixth grader, not because I like killing kids, but because that year he happened to be in the same school as the future great philosopher Wittgenstein, and I thought I could have a talk with him after offing the future dictator.

Unfortunately, I forgot that time machines do not also move a person through space, so I spent a cold night in Spokane in the year 1911, then came back to the present and slept it off.

Well, my first "25 Random Things About Me" was that I enjoy writing fiction, which is true, so I will have to come up with another lie, but I have some time, since I'm going to put one of these up daily. We'll see how many days of rest I inadvertently take in the process.
