In Case of Hooks, Part 5: "Hook To The Future"
In case of bad dreams involving fires, wake up from nap.
If woken up from nap, realize that you were dreaming of fires because your house is on fire.
If house is on fire, look for glass to break.
If no glass, turn on sink.
If sink begins spurting out fire instead of water, get out of your house because you’re pretty much screwed.
In case of standing across the street and watching house burn down, I’m sorry.
In case of apology from me, go downtown, because now you have nothing better to do.
If you do actually have something better to do, do that instead.
In case of claiming to have something better to do, you’re lying, because you’re homeless now.
If homeless, visit mad scientist in jail, and offer money for access to his time machine.
If using time machine, exit in the future.
In case of everyone having hooks for hands in the future, maybe you screwed something up by time traveling.
In case of screwing something up by time traveling, grab nearest hook-handed person and ask how everyone got hooks for hands.
If hook-handed person begins telling story, take a seat and listen intently.
If story starts with a fire and is told in 140-character bursts, you may be listening to a Twitter feed.
If you were not around to save the day (you were time traveling, remember?), the fire continued to spread.
In case of world-wide fire, people followed proper procedure.
If proper procedure was properly followed, everyone ended up with hooks for hands.
In case of a world filled with hook-handed people, use time machine to return to your present/their past.
