Time and a Halfwit

3rdAug. × ’09

I’ve always felt that Ulrich is a little out of place in our office. It’s not just that he has a list of sex candidates, ordered from human to inanimate, posted on his cubicle wall – updated weekly mind you. It goes far shallower than that. The biggest indicator that he doesn’t fit into this office or this reality is his office attire. He has forsaken the IT uniform of comfortable sneakers and dandruff for of all things, a bow-tie, boots and a leather cape. When I commented on his outfit, Ulrich told me that should he, for some reason, get shunted back through time, he would be able to fit in to society quite easily as he has a fashion buffer of 30-80 years.

He asked if I’d like to see the trunk of his car, which is apparently full of different types of swords. You know, just in case. He slid his hand into his boot and produced a small parcel he referred to as the emergency pack. I just walked off with wide eyes and a firmly closed mouth, because I want to believe that I saw Ulrich pulling a glove out of it, but I’m fairly certain they don’t make gloves in flesh coloured vinyl.

    Chances are if he does travel back in time, instead of keeping his clothes he’ll find clothes that don’t match that age, just in case he goes back in time again.
