Brain: Let’s go Rocket Boy, rise and shine
Me: I’m already awake, shut up
Brain: Okay, you don’t have to be a dick
Me: Sorry, I’m just tired
Brain: Hey, the world’s tired buckaroo
Brain: The world is tired. Tired of the shit sandwich we read and hear about via the media everyday
Brain: Gone are the days of honest and open discourse. It’s either my way or no way.
Me: No kidding
Brain: Come on Rocket Boy, you can help change that
Me: How the hell can I change it?
Brain:You can be a lighthouse of pozitudinally righteous energy
Me: Not that crap again
Brain: I am serious, think about how better your day is when we go to the gym and accomplish something positive. Albeit doing 2.5 miles on an elliptical machine isn’t exactly “Gandhian,” it’s a start
Me: I guess
Brain: Guess nothing Rocket Boy. It’s contagious
Me: Yeah, like Ebola.
Brain: Come on Rocket Boy, give it a shot
Brain: I need you all-in Rocket Boy. Together we can make people feel better.
Me: Okay, how
Brain: Good question. How about making people laugh. Laughter is always good.
Me: I like to laugh
Brain: Who doesn’t like to laugh
Me: Good point
Brain: Twain once said, “the human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.
Me: I like that.
Brain: Our job is to figure out how to arm everyone with that most effective weapon
Me: And how the hell are we going to do that
Brain: I think we just gotta keep doing what we do
Me: What’s that going to accomplish?
Brain: I have no clue. But if one person joins the parade of marching, shining lighthouses we’ll be better
Me: Marching lighthouses? What the fuck are you on.
Brain: You know what I mean.
Me: LOL, marching fucking lighthouses
Brain: Don’t laugh.One person, shining brightly can light up more people and then those people light up and then everyone is lit up
Me: You’re fucking lit alright….sheesh your a loon
Brain: Probably, but it only takes one
Me: Yep, just one
