What the future was like

There was no life in the oceans. Ocelots were extinct. Hot, it was real hot. But cities were the size of states, and the nicer hoods were air conditioned, so you could party. People basically had sex with each other willy-nilly. You met someone (other sex, same-sex, or “fluid”) and said “Waa o get hinki?” and they’d say “yuh” and next thing you knew you be bumpin’ on the counter at World-Mart. The Moon was closer. The Sun was farther. Sitcoms were still a thing but they happened in your daydreams. China and America were copyrighted. Disease killed no-one but tantrums killed lots. There was a tree. You had to travel to see it. Ditto the anteater. Wow it’s good to be back from the future. Waa o get hinki?
