he didn't notice it for several minutes
while i was trying to get a sneaky photo of him typing with the horse in the background, he FOUND IT
behold the ultimate action shot:
"hey Tom, who came back here while i was gone?"
"like in the past 15 minutes, who came by my desk?"
"oh i dunno, i guess i wasn't paying attention"
"i got a ... horse. someone left a horse."
"i was here the whole time too, guess i didn't notice. huh."
I STRIKE FROM THE SHADOWS
NONE SUSPECT MY PRESENCE, LIKE A VERY DARK COLOURED PIDGEON IN A DARK ALLEYWAY, PLOTTING
IF THE CAMELS RETURN, NEXT WEEK A NEW HORSE WILL APPEAR, ALONG WITH AN EQUINE PHOTOGRAPH WITH THIS OVERLAYED ON TOP:
a few minutes ago i stole the remote and snuck into a "phone room" (tiny private cubes for making calls)
after carefully removing (ripping) the 8 off, I scratched off the wiring on the board below it so that the 8 could never be pressed again
it kept lighting up anyway when I added the button back, but the button sits in the remote kinda shitty and it accidentally presses more than you want if you manage to get it to light up.... oh well, mission close enough to accomplished i guess
yes folks, that's right, you've guessed it: operation horseday has officially escalated to chemical weapons: GASLIGHTING
HAS THIS SADDLE ALWAYS BEEN HERE? SURELY IT HASNT... HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN HERE? WHO PUT IT HERE? HOW DOES IT FIT SO PERFECTLY??? WHERE HAS MY LIFE GONE WRONG?????
feel free to take bets on how long it takes him to notice the ｃｈａｎｇｅ
(yes that is a coffee mug that says I LOVE MY WIFE on it)
holy friick im?
@root happy horseday Elle!! 🐎
it just snuck on me thanks!
@killeveryhetero I don’t know how I missed this before today, but I love this entire thread
@killeveryhetero god this is so epic. I fucking hate that commercial
@killeveryhetero the good news is when they redo all the channel numbers next week you can just claim the remote stopped working, get a new one, and then fix the new one too
@anna channel numbers are changing?
@killeveryhetero today ends in y, it is hump day, and the channels are changing
@anna CN has been 64 around here since i was tiny smol zoey that's why i remember it
i don't even have cable or TV in general aside from streaming services now, but still
@killeveryhetero yeah i havent had cable in forever i am but a smol boomer
@killeveryhetero I've considered making something with an IR LED and a controller board in a key fob that s l o w l y turns the volume down over the course of a few minutes.
@killeveryhetero this saga is so important
@killeveryhetero they've got their blinders on
The horse'd has become the horse
@killeveryhetero At first parsed this as him using the horse to type and you taking the photo in the background. So like, just imagine someone pushing the horse feet on the keyboard to type it is a really good thing to imagine.
