I drive my personal jet out of its hangar and onto the tarmac without approval. A plane aborts a landing and continues to circle. I take off. Take to the air, one parachute and a tank full of fuel. No deaths.

My mother is dying in hospital. A friend calls me, they’ve had a bad day. I neglect to give them attention.

I steal an almond from coles. One singular almond. It was on the floor, to be thrown out I presumed, I pick it up, dust it off and eat.
