    But real talk I've been in the middle of a phone call and hung on the person just saying "dude dude dude I gotta go I'll call you in 5" so that I could quickly jot down some code to fix a bug I had.

    These moments usually come mid shit or whenever I'm tryna go to sleep.

    The issue is it’s a story that doesn’t make sense. Like the yellow nothingness represented the blue void or something. It’s a complete thought, just as your program is functional, but it is meaningless with out more context.
