Internet Inspiration: Kidding Or Stupid?

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I saw a Twitter conversation that scared me a little bit. The initial comment was “Who should be the 800th person I follow?????” This was coming from a user that was following 759 people. Someone brought this up: “You only have 759 how’s that gon turn to 800? Lol.” The response was “when it is 4:59 does it not become 5:00 next?” This scared me because I don’t think that the user was kidding. I want to believe that they were but I can’t seem to convince myself. I know that we all have our absentminded moments but this doesn’t feel absentminded. This feels like the person was confident in their logic. We live in a world where there are people who don’t understand that counting is different for time than just numbers in sequential order. So inspired by this horrifying internet interaction, write a scene in which your character can’t tell if someone is kidding or stupid. If they are kidding was their joke actually funny? Does your character have the heart to tell them she didn’t like it? If they aren’t kidding, does your character feel the need to educate them?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,
