It’ll Happen Eventually

By James Rumpel

I turned on my TV so I could watch the press conference. Representatives of every movie studio, broadcast television company, and streaming provider were seated on a large stage. Each had a dour look on their face.

One of the CEOs stood and slowly walked to the podium. She addressed the cameras and crowd of reporters, “We regret to inform you that, as of last night, we have now filmed and produced every story possible. There are no more new stories to be told.”

I turned to my wife and said, “You know, I think I’ve seen this one before.”
