Rantglass - because that's how things are.


Drones.

Drones.

It began like just any other day.

“How do we develop our negotation skills? You negotiate with the salesperson, with your spouse, with…”

For a brief moment, everything else seemed to fizzled out. I could see the lines fading away – and then back in, pulling me into a sudden warp that lasted for probably a mere microsecond. I felt as though I were seated in a different lecture hall, listening attentively to his words, toying with a pen and a new set of notes in front of me. It hardly helped that the seats were all blue in colour, further accentuating the possibility that we could very well be in that other environment altogether.

It was kind of cool, and I felt that tingly sensation that I always get whenever I feel particularly excited over things that do not quite exist: things that would make a few others raise their eyebrows with worry if I were to tell them about it. I am not that prone to daydreaming, but it is not often that my imagination goes wild – and not especially so lately, when I already have more than enough on my plate.

Then my mind wandered – damn – what if I never came here? What if I were really there? No, I would not survive all those grueling exercises and drills that would put me painfully in bed for half a day. Or maybe police negotiators do not really have to do that.

Or I could be a writer. In events management. Mass communication. Anything else, but this.

Well, the only thing missing was a handy pistol and a leather holster.

I think it is no big surprise that I love watching cop dramas and movies.
