“Whoa… How long have I been down?”. David, rubbing the crystals of sleep from his eyes, was starting to come out of the confusion of reentry. He’d just spent what seemed like a week inside machine world. Or was it more? “No, it can’t be”. But it was. The screen flashed, “2054”. (280 characters)

The last thing I expected to see was my own advice hitting me in the eyes on my way to the lawyers. But on my way to the lawyers office to finalize the papers closing my business, all I could see was the collection of placards on the back wall. It’s time for me to “Fail Forward”.
