I was a little late to the party on ‘The Egg’, Andy Weir’s popular short story that was published before his novel The Martian went on to become a bestseller and soon to be released Ridley Scott movie. Clocking in around a thousand words, The Egg is a quick read that will only cost you the time it would take to watch the thirty second ad that will play before your twenty second cat video on youtube. So, it’s worth your time, whether you’re cat enthusiast, cat casual or cat neutral. I urge you to hop over to his site and check it out. It’s a good one (and has nothing to do with cats. Cat videos are just the best method of measuring time on the internet).

It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless.
You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death.
