Out for a jog

James was out for his morning jog when suddenly he found himself in a crowd. People began cheering. He waved and they waved back. James was starting to feel very confused when a woman handed him a cup of water. He’d never had this kind of attention when he jogged.

Rounding a corner he found himself running across a finish line. People began waving and clapping. Some ran up to him with flowers. He asked one what the excitement was about and she answered he was the first to finish.

Finish what? He asked her to which she told him the local marathon though they were suprised anyone had made it to the end so fast. As she said this some reporters began to snap his picture.

He wanted to say he just was out for his morning jog but now that line felt crossed… literally. Oops.
