Tilling the Cosmic Silence

Characters: me, person

I was in a very apocalyptic scenario, with some people who were trying to get together to leave a ravaged area. One person stopped to ask if they could go back and get some of their CDs.
me: "No, keep moving."
Someone pulled out a remote control and pressed play, causing some classical music to start playing from one of the buildings we had left. He turned it up all the way.
person: "I'm glad that at least I left that disc in the player. So Beethoven is still out there, tilling the cosmic silence...I guess he always will be."
me: "If you were going to create some kind of sound beacon, then we should leave a sign saying which direction we were going in case anyone is attracted by it. But I don't know how long the power grid will be working here."
When I awoke, I decided that "tilling the cosmic silence" was a pretty interesting thing for him to have said.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
