  1. I put the 3d blueray in the player and sat back with my newfangled glasses. I smiled as the hulk tore through the set and started running after the bad guys. My grilled cheese sandwich sat on a plate beside me untouched as I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. Nothing would ruin this night for me. Nothing could take me away from this room, nothing…

    “Jake! Come over here, you have to see this!”
    “I’m watching the Avengers, it’ll have to wait!”
    “Look! There’s someone out there, on the water!”
    “I don’t care if it’s Jesus and he’s parting the Red Sea, I’m not…”
    “They’re coming! They’re coming!”
    I sat up, and ran toward my wife. She was crying now, and her eyes were as round as saucers. I looked out the window and I couldn’t believe it. Ships were pulling in and red and green lights strobed all around.
    “What are they?”
    “I don’t know, Jake. I don’t know…”

  2. “But come on, I want a ‘Big Screen TV’ that takes up the whole wall so I can watch ‘The Avengers’ and ‘The Age of Ultron’ on.,.on…on a ‘Big Screen TV’! Just like in the cinema! And have big whopping speakers to get that big fat Dolby Surround Sound!”
    “The chances of you getting a ‘Big Screen TV’ are the same as you parting the Red Sea.”
    “What do I work all week for, eh? So I can come home every night and watch some shit on this measly piece of crap!” Tucker threw his empty beer can at the television, narrowly missing the screen and hitting the cat. “Why can’t I finish my day watching a ‘Big Screen TV’?’
    ‘Because you work at Walmart.”
    “Oh yeah.” Tucker sighed and flicked the channel.
    “You want a grilled cheese sandwich?”
    Tucker sat there, watching a ‘Friends’ repeat. “Yeah, alright.”
