Brain: Hey what are you doing?
Brain: Why are you in here?
Me: I don’t know, you must have left the door open
Brain: Hmmmm, I thought for sure I shut it tight
Me: What’s the big issue?
Brain: No issue I was just doing some stuff and don’t need you poking around
Me: What kind of stuff?
Brain: Just stuff
Me: What do you mean stuff?
Brain: (Who cares what I tell him, he’ll think it was a dream) I’m planting our thought garden
Brain: A thought garden
Me: Cool what are you planting
Brain: To be honest I got a couple of different packs of seeds that I am just going to scatter over here, in our Claustrum
Me: The what?
Brain: The Claustrum. It’s just outside of Boston
Brain: Just kidding. The Claustrum is a relatively obscure region of me. It’s believed that the Claustrum coordinates different inputs and outputs across me to create consciousness.
Brain: I know, pretty weird
Me: So what are you planting?
Brain: Well, we have myriad thoughts. Some good, some not so good, some funny that we can share, some funny that we can’t share. Some totally stupid and some pure genius
Me: So how do you know what will grow
Brain: It depends on which one’s we feed and nuture.
Me: Look it that one floating around just like a dandelion. Weeeeeee
Brain: Stop running through there, those are not dandelions
Me: They sure look like dandelions
Brain: Shit, you’re spreading those seeds all over the place
Me: Hehehehe, this is fun
Brain: Enough, time to stop this nonsense
Brain: A little more nudging
Me: Yawn, hmmmm. Good morning Brain
Brain: Good morning you pain in the ass
Me: Pain in the ass? What did I do now?
Brain: Nothing, it’s my term of endearment for you
Me: Man, I had the wildest dreams
Me: Yeah, I had a dream that I was running through a big field of dandelions chasing the cowardly lion from the Wizard of Oz
Me: And when I caught up with him we ran into Dorothy but it was really Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island
Brain: Stop! I definitely don’t need to hear more of your thoughts
Me: What is wrong with that?
Brain: I just didn’t know where you were going with your commentary
Me: Relax Brain, nothing but good thoughts
Brain: Good to hear Fat Man
Me: I think it’s going to be a great day Brain
Brain: Nothing better than positive thoughts
Me: Right on Brain
