A Snippet of a Work in Progress

KHAL: With this scope, we will be able to find man-made structures in the mountains!
FRANKIE: How does it work?
KHAL: I have no idea.
FRANKIE: You have no idea?
KHAL: None at all.
FRANKIE: How did you invent a device like that on accident?
KHAL: It wasn’t easy. I was aiming for a coffee roaster.
FRANKIE: Of course you were. But you’re sure it works?
KHAL: Absolutely! ….probably
FRANKIE: Probably?
KHAL: Or it might explode.
FRANKIE: Explode.
KHAL: Small explosion! Barely a pop and a fizzle! Maybe a little smoke.
FRANKIE: Not like last time.
KHAL: Not in the least.
FRANKIE: Because the last “small explosion” took out half a city block.
KHAL: In fairness, it was slated for demolition anyway. And we got paid to demolish the other half. Now THAT was an explosion.
FRANKIE: Indeed. But just in case, I’m going to stand over there by the escape hatch when you turn it on.
KHAL: After all this time, do you not trust my genius?
FRANKIE: Of course I do. I just feel that sometimes it needs to be trusted from a distance.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
