"...while several of the tangled bedsheets making up our reality behaved in some respects like a very thin lightweight fabric—gossamer, say—the wrinkles produced in them by our flicking were much shallower than they should have been, as if the sheets were actually made of something heavier...there might be a blanket, causing the sheets not to dent so deeply when we flicked them."

Chiming in late from San Francisco - observed this great holiday with two good friends who also work in the area. One beer, one shot, ended up being gone about an hour but nobody seems to have noticed or cared because it is one of those kinds of jobs.
