Matter – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

“Captain!” came the call over the intercom.

With a sigh, Captain Wilson closed his book and hit the intercom button. “What is it, Miles?” he said tersely. “I thought my standing orders were that I was not to be disturbed when I was reading unless it was a matter of utmost importance.”

“This is a matter of utmost importance, sir!”

“Well, what’s the matter, then?”

“It’s the dark matter reactor, sir! It’s about to go critical!”

“Why didn’t you tell me sooner!”

“We didn’t want to disturb you, sir, and thought we could correct the problem ourselves before it got out of hand.”

“Obviously, you were wrong.”

“Yes, sir.”

“There’s nothing that can be done, then?”

“No, sir.”

“Issue the order to abandon ship, then.”

“Yes, sir!”
