Me and My Brain

Brain: We turned in revisions, and I am very tired. I think I deserve cake. Cake today? Today is the day I plan on eating cake, drinking tea, and staring at the television. I’m thinking if we search Netflix we’ll find a show about cake.

Me: Actually, Brain, we need to write an essay, and start working on some short fiction.

Brain: I like chocolate cake.

Me: Brain, there are still things to do.

Brain: Lemon cake? Coconut cake?

Me: Essay.

Brain: Look, I can compromise. The 14yr old makes really good cookies.

Me: Essay.

Brain: No essay. Cake.

Me: Essay.

Brain: …you know you’re not getting an essay without my cooperation, right?

Me: [headdesk]

    Hi Ann.
    Thank you. I am reading ancillary justice 66%.
    It is amazing and a truly alien experience.
    Very unusual, a treasure.
    Your story is very complex and sensitive, creative and gripping,believable.
    I don’t find much science fiction to enthral me since the passing of Ian. M. Banks.

    I liked your conversation with brain above this form. I too have these sorts of conversations with my brain
    I will find your short stories and hope that you write more novels.
    My very best regards
