New Girl and I have been time travelling.
We decided whilst chatting on the phone that since my office is located east of hers, I was speaking to her from the future. I told her I was eating a muffin to help quell my irritation at something. She was impressed to hear that in the future we finally have muffins. She's heard of them.
It seems that a text message I'd sent to her prior to our phone call hadn't arrived - caught in the time warp, obviously. New Girl has a solution: from now on, when I need to text her from work, I need to drive to the beach so I'm west of her and send my message from there. That all sounds like too much work falling on to my shoulders. What I suggested instead is that I call her - since telephones seemingly remain immune from these time passages - tell her I need to send her a text, get her to drive east of here, to the WACA or something, and wait there to get my message. Simple!
These are the kind of problem-solving skills that propel us ever onward and upward in our careers.
