"Excuse me, I am a time traveler but my machine malfunctioned, so I'm not sure when I am."
"It's 2020."
"Which year of 2020?"
"What do you mean?"
"Ah, so this must be the first year of 2020."
"Oh. Damn."

@MicroSFF could that mean next year will be 2020 again? Perhaps a do-over to make up for this one :flan_think:

@MicroSFF I really liked this one. It's simultaneously ambiguous and intriguingly apocalyptic. Well done!

@adamasnemesis @MicroSFF it's also very much positive.. human race survived few thousand years more, and invented time machine too..

@MicroSFF Reminds me of a dialogue in a Dr Who episode where they say "World War One" to a WW1 captain that was like "What do you mean, world war *one*?".
