Mechanical

via Daily Prompt: Automatic

Going through the motions, like a robot, you reflexively feel nothing. It’s as if you are on auto-pilot. Not unlike the plane, that with a flick of the switch glides, keeping its altitude and its course, your busyness is self-activating.

Automatic. A given.Something that falls your way, and you expect it to do so.

Automatic. Once upon a time you learned to drive a car without need of a clutch or shift and we called it automatic. Now, there are self-driving cars. Does that make life simpler or more complicated?
