End Times and the interrogative mood.

My phone tells me:

earthhasstopped

Questions ensue:

In what way could this be OK? Can we imagine ways in which this might not be OK? Does the use of “Unfortunately” and OK in the same statement evince an emotionally mature mélange of acceptance and willingness to move on, or is it simply a sign of careless typing? To whom should we REPORT? Would the recipients of the REPORT care? Does the Android operating system have a way of reaching said recipients and, if so, can I buy the messaging upgrade? Can I REPORT other occurrences that alarm me or cause me anxiety? Or should I, in those anxious moments, be more OK? Where, finally, is the UNDO button?

    I’d like to think Wendell Berry could help with this but I’m certain the Android operating system would not be compatible with his typewriter. Perhaps therein lies a part, but only a small part of the answer. And I concur, where is the UNDO button? Thanks for making us think!
