Time dilation fields really suck…you know, those annoying little pockets of subspace where the hours slip away more rapidly, relative to normal spacetime.
It seems I’m wandering into them with increasing frequency these days. (Either that, or Earth’s orbit has been causing my body to pass through a number of these fields while my stationary ass is cradled by my office chair.)
I often start the day with a long list of things that I’d like to accomplish, yet just as I’m starting to make any discernible progress, I glance up at the clock, and sure enough, during what seemed like mere moments from my point of view, an entire day’s worth of hours are suddenly gone.
The time dilation effect seems to be even stronger around my apartment. Evenings, weekends, and vacations days whiz by in an instant. I recently tried to take two weeks off, and for the life of me, I cannot account for where the time went.
To make matters worse, I think that my recent weight gain has amplified the gravitational forces surrounding my body, thus increasing the time dilation.
