Light pierced violently through the cracks of my tattered vinyl blinds as I slivered out of bed. My head was throbbing, a cast of confusion encased my thoughts. "What day is it?" I grumbled to myself. I headed straight towards the fridge to grab a glass of water, then sat at my desk to begin my compulsive ritual of sifting through the daily news.
By chance, I clicked on a site called Verichip. In bold letters, I read aloud, "IMPLANTABLE CHIP." Curiosity began to flourish. Implanted into what, I wondered? As I hurriedly read through, it became all too clear, the chip is designed for humans. I pinched myself to see if I was really only dreaming. "Ouch! that hurt," I cried. I reached for my phone to see the date: 06/02/08.
