A Conversation with My Brain

Me: Hello, Brain. Nice of you to show up.

Brain: I was busy.

Me: Well, you could have called.

Brain: You were napping.

Me: I was cold.

Brain: You’re not a bear.

Me: And I was weighted down by the cat on my lap.

Brain: Hmmm. Well, that sounds like an excuse.

Me: Well, it isn’t.

Brain: But it sounds like one.

Me: Whatever.

Me: Did you like the book?

Brain: Loved it!

Me: Could have fooled me.

Me: Where were you when I was sitting staring at an empty screen on the computer every night trying to write about it?

Brain: I was thinking about something else.

Me: What could have been so important?

Brain: I was thinking of pancakes.

Me: Fair enough.  


  1. It was so cold in my neck of the woods last week I can relate - except I have an 80 pound lapdog instead of a cat.

    1. If I had an 80 pound lapdog, I think I would have been very warm. On the flip side to that, though, I don't think I would have moved from the couch. MY cat is heavy enough, but he sticks like flypaper when I'm trying to get up.

      I really can't wait for this cold snap to end. I've had enough of winter.

  2. Glad to know I'm not the only one to talk to various of my body parts. With a nasty chest infection at the moment I'm having daily conversations with my lungs.

    1. I am really sorry to hear you've been under the weather. No pun intended. No, you are not alone. I find, actually, that I will pretty much talk to anything that won't listen...and that includes hubby.

      I'd say I talk to myself, but then people might think I have money in the bank.

  3. Pancakes are not a good excuse! Now waffles on the other hand....waffles would be a good excuse. ;)

    1. Pancakes are totally a good excuse!! What are you talking about? Waffles are okay, though, but only if I can have Egg on the side. See how I did that? I don't think Egg would like Waffles, though, no offense to Waffles. Egg just just doesn't really seem to like anything that is not warm, food or scratchies.

    2. I see what you did there....very funny. Is it strange that we've named our pets after food? Waffles the dog and Egg the cat. I wanted to name the dog Doctor or Tardis, but was vetoed. Stay warm my friend!
