the smuggler’s bible


After lunch, a symbol appears in the corner of Jodie’s computer screen. She clicks it, because doing so is better than real work.

There are more than ten thousand unread emails in your inbox.

Jodie tries to cancel the notification but there is no obvious way to close the window. There aren’t even options to select, just a blank text field.

Sometimes the only way out is through. She cracks her knuckles and types “so what?”

To live thusly in unvirtuous.

Jodie pulls the plug after that. Everyone knows the devil invented emails, so what is there to argue about?
