I wait in line all day and into the night.  For some World of Warcraft sequel?  I had no idea; I play along.  A co-worker admits that he played games as a kid so that he would understand the computers when he got a job and now he has a job to pay for the games.  I laugh like it’s a joke, take my box and leave.  Outside, it’s midnight and a blisteringly hot summer.  But once I step into the car (the old Neon), it flash freezes inside and out.  The car is encased in ice and the interior is frosted over as well.  I manage to jam the key into the slot and turn — it takes a few turns but the engine eventually turns over.  But I can’t go anywhere because the axles are still frozen solid.
