Believe Your Eyes

Yesterday's, up late.  Sorry!  Went to sleep right after work and drove all night.


The doors slid open with a whoosh and a ding.  E119 darted out.  “Sir!  Report from eye level!”

The Colonel snatched the sheaf of papers.  His expression fell.  “This… what is this nonsense?”

“Sir, I don’t know, sir!  I’m only a Junior Floaty Bit, first class!”

The Colonel bent his speaking tube forward.  “Get me the bowels.  This has to be a figment.  If they’ve been mucking around again…”

E119 laughed dutifully.  The Colonel glared.

“Sorry, sir!  Thought you were making a joke.  Bowels, muck…”

“This is Logic, son.  We don’t do humor,” said the Colonel.  “That’s two floor down.”

Okay, I feel really dumb, but I can't figure out what the "Junior Floaty Bit" is.

He works in the eyes and he's low rank. You know those floaty things that come in front of your vision when you're tired or if you press on your eyes hard and stuff? Those floater things?

Ah, I get it! I knew there was something I was missing. And now it all falls into place.
