It is the 23rd day of the 4th month of the year 2013, and there's a war on. Every day, lives are claimed and thousands succumb to it. It is a war against an enemy who has grown in size and strength, slowly at first, but always growing stronger. Too many have been taken prisoner, too many have submitted or given themselves up, and few are left to fight. It is a silent war, the loudest silent war in the history of man.
It is the war against Monotony, and it has gone on for far too long.
This is The Monotony Dismissal.
