Senseless Wednesday Sarcasm : What You’re Not
ME: Hey! God, the Universe, and Everything. There’s nothing like Sudafed and exhaustion. I slept for 5 hours straight tonight.
GUE: And that is important because….
ME: It means I have 5 more hours to sleep, and I won’t have to drag my body all the way to the bathroom.
GUE: What’s really on your mind?
ME: Why do little pieces of you have to experience life? Why can’t we simply dream it?
GUE: How will I know who “I am” unless your experiences become me?
ME: If you can think it, then it happens. Whatever “it” is.
GUE: Not the same. You’re given free will and a collective conscience.
ME: A condition that continually reaches for the most insane governments imaginable.
GUE: Some days, understanding what I’m NOT helps me to understand what I AM.
ME: Tell that to 6 million Jews and 25 million Russians who were killed the midst of World War Two.
GUE: Humans invented self-destruction. If the human experiment fails completely, I might give Bees a chance next time around.
ME: Not funny! Why Bees?
GUE: Peas don’t have a collective consciousness.
ME: But you said humans have a collective conscience.
GUE: It’s your free will that causes most of my problems.
ME: So…you’ll have Einstein bees doing exactly what you tell them to do. They’re happy all their lives. What can you learn from that?
GUE: Do you see how easily you answered your own question?
ME: Why do I have to be one of the little pieces of life having an experience?
GUE: Would you rather be a desert nomad, or perhaps you would have preferred watching your children die of starvation in Central Africa? How about Siberia…I can arrange that.
ME: You’re saying I got lucky?
GUE: You live in Florida. It took you 14 moves around the country and 5 husbands to understand; Florida is where you belong.
ME: Are you saying that one day soon (aka a gazillion years for you) you’ll know who you are, and where you belong?
GUE: (smiling): Precisely.
