Brain: La, la, la
Me: Good morning. What are you doing?
Brain: Just some spring cleaning. Getting rid of some clutter in here
Brain: Yeah, some thoughts, ideas, feelings that are just taking up space. Anything negative, whoosh out the door
Brain: What’s worse? The second when you realize you stubbed your little toe on the door frame or the 2 seconds you spend in anticipation of the pain to register in your brain
Me: Um, I don’t know
Brain: Speaking of pain, are nose hairs attached directly to the optic nerve?
Me: I don’t think so
Brain: What’s worse….Having loud unintelligible voices in your head or having clear voices which you listen to?
Me: I don’t really know
Brain: No one read signs, so you can imagine how few people read books
Me: Ha, that’s probably true
Brain: Peanut butter and jelly is under-rated
Me: I’d agree
Brain: Shit Fat Man, enough of this rambling, we have to go
Me: Damn, I was kind of hoping you’d forget
Brain: Not a chance wiper of other people’s bottoms
Me: Shut up, I’m going
Brain: I need a good dose of Synaptic Provocateurs today so we’re going to really push it
3 miles and 30 minutes later
Brain: Nice job Fat Man. We are rocking on the Synaptic highway! Weeee Hoooo
Me: I am glad you are enjoying yourself
Brain: Me and the boys are going to hang for a little bit
Me: Oh joy
Brain: Hey it’s Friday. Free Will Friday
Me: What does that even mean
Brain: You know, independence, liberty the pursuit of happiness crap
Brain: How about Free Willy Friday? Hehehehe
Brain: Let your Willy go!
Me: You are insane
Brain: That may be true but I am not alone.
Me: No Brain, you are not
Brain: There’s a great quote from that Zen Motorcycle guy, Robert Pirsig….“When you live in the shadow of insanity, the appearance of another mind that thinks and talks as yours does is something close to a blessed event.”
Me: I like that
Brain: Here’s to more blessed events
Me: Wow, that was quite a ramble today
