What if, during the night you were transported to a parallel universe without your knowledge?

You climb out of bed in the morning and stagger to the kitchen, scowling belligerently at any living creature that dares look in your direction.

The coffee machine is missing.

You search the pantry cupboard. Even the emergency instant coffee is gone!

Feeling panicky now, you seek out your partner.

“Where’s the coffee machine?” you ask.

She stares at you with a quizzical expression.

“What’s ‘coffee’?” she says.
