You’re at a party chatting with a group of people. Suddenly, while trying to emphasize a point in the story they’re telling, your drunk friend makes an exaggerated hand gesture and knocks the drink out of someone else’s hand!
Because you are constantly in a cat-like state of readiness, you see this happen even before it happens. You lunge. Everything is in slow motion. You are acting on pure instinct. You can see the matrix.
Just before the drink hits the floor, you catch it! Didn’t even spill a drop.
You return the drink to Ol’ Butterfingers’ hand and casually whisper, “The first one’s free.”
