In a Loop

I don’t know how, why, why to me, why exactly now it happened.
All I know that it did happen and when…when it happened.
It was a casual Monday.
I woke up, showered, had breakfast, brushed my teeth and went to work.
While going to the office, I noticed that people were…weird.
They were zoning out…but en-masse.
There were countless almost accidents in the short 10 min walk I had until the office…
People were…
Truthfully, there is a perfect word for this: lagging.
Like they were out-of-sync with time and reality…
And how truthful that was…
My day went smoothly but weirdly…
I worked usually 9 hours, but that day, I barely finished a report, when my boss told me to go home, not to work overtime…
I looked at the time, and indeed it was 9 hours, 5 minutes later…
I went home, watched an episode of my favorite show while eating, trained for 45 minutes, took a shower, brushed my teeth and went to sleep…
In the morning, when I woke up…
It was Monday again…
At first I thought my phone went mad…
But then my watch was the same…
Laptop the same…
Gaming rig the same…
My routine was the same, but that was normal.
But while going to the office, I noticed that people were…weird…again.
They were zoning out…but en-massed…once more.
There were tons of accidents almost happening, in the mere 10 minutes I had to walk until the office…
People were…
Lagging.
They were not sure when they were walking…
And how true that was, even for me.
My day went smoothly, but weirdly.
I sat down at my desk, then stood up, as it was time to go home…
I went home, and watched an episode of my favorite show while eating (another episode), trained for 45 minutes, took a shower, brushed my teeth and went to sleep…
In the morning when I woke up…
I laughed, the hysterical laugh when someone breaks down…
It was Monday again…
I did my routine again…and again…and again…
And by the time, Monday 183 happened, I was starting to calm down…
I stopped trying to change my routine, and started to enjoy my life.
I had the thought of doing some…things…both legal and illegal…
But I shrugged those thoughts off…
It wasn’t me to cause mayhem…
Whether it stays or resets…
I was in a loop, and fairly, it wasn’t too bad.
That “wasn’t too bad” went on for tens of thousands of Mondays…
After all, it was only me who realized time was on a loop.
But then, a woman jumped in front of me kissed me.
“Guy nr. 29212, checked. “
She said and left.
She was like me…
She knew we were in a loop.
That’s when, hope sprouted in me…
If I am not the only one who knows about the loop…
Maybe we can make everyone realize it…
And thus…
Breaking it…
