Be quick or be deadBe quick or be dead

Something really scary happened this thursday. Or if it was wednesday? Whatever. I talked to Erik on the phone. I don’t really remember what we talked about. Somehing about drummers. And I hear when Erik says:

“Be quick or be dead”.

And the call is interrupted.

You get it, right? For several weeks I have been really hooked by the TV serie called Jericho, where a couple of nuclear bombs detonate and all communication to a small town in Kansas is interrupted, then you really becomes worried in such situations.

However, it was a totally ordinary interruption, probably something the mobile phone companies use to make you call someone again, so they can charge for starting another call. Det hände en ganska otäck sak i torsdags. Eller om det var onsdags? Sak samma. Jag pratade med Erik i telefon. Jag kommer inte ihåg vad det var vi diskuterade. Någonting om olika trummisar. Jag hör Erik säga:

“Be quick or be dead”.

Sen bryts samtalet.

Ni fattar, eller hur? Om man som jag är just nu är helt inne i serien Jericho, där ett antal detonerande atombomber gör att all typ av kommunikation till en liten stad i Kansas bryts tvärt, då tar man inte lätt på sånt där.

Men det visade sig dock i vanlig ordning vara en helt vanlig nedkoppling, förmodligen något teleoperatörerna har satt satt i system för att man ska ringa upp varandra igen och dom ska kunna fakturera en uppringningsavgift.
