A constant presence.
Portal of information and entertainment.
Bearer of news both good and bad.
Secretly bleeding you of time and energy.
Turn the bloody thing off.
Go read a book instead, philistine!
Written in response to Thain in Vain’s Week 33 prompt: Open the book you are reading right now (or a favourite if you aren’t reading anything, oh, and shame on you!), turn to page 33 (or 33% on e-readers) and write a super flash fiction about the first proper noun (person, place or thing) on the page!
