I'm wondering about a short-story...

Discussion in 'The Book Rack' started by Binky .357, May 26, 2005.

  1. I've long since forgotten the name of the author or the title of the story, but it was about two guys in a nuclear missile silo who have either been forgotten or have survived The Big Number Three, WW3.

    It's told in a first person point of view, and the author/narrator is talking about how if he pushes a button, the bird flies. He also says he's tried to reach both launch keys, but the distance is too great.

    I think the story starts with the line "Because of an oversight, we've been here two weeks. We've been here two weeks because of an oversight..."

    Any help on this one?
