I just read it and kinda had the same thought: very tangentially sci-fi.

So when my bud introduced me to the material, we listened to a couple other short stories by the author on audio book. One had a very similar mechanism to what’s going on here, but went in a different direction with it. Both the shorts were more like plotless monologues than stories, so I found it kinda funny that this was literally a monologue.
