I woke up with a revelation. Something about changing the world, changing myself and maybe changing my clothes. I put off the last part in favour of comfort and mostly laziness. I didn’t have anything else I was dying to wear. If I did, I’d be out and about showing it off. That’s the only reason I dress up.
About this revelation, it went something like this: Edlyn you need to write. You need to be witty and smart and quirky so everybody who reads you wants to be your friend and buy you a drink. I like drinks, like soup! Then as I was having this thought, I started thinking about what I’d write. I wouldn’t be mundane; I’d sail and write about the sea and crustacean. I’d write about human rights and the Wright brothers (I wouldn’t really; I just wanted to write right and Wright in the same sentence). Then I started thinking about having little cartoons every time I wrote something which could be described in a picture.
I had a lot of ideas. I was so proud.
Then I wondered, like I always do, if I would remember all my genius brain conjured. So then my revelation was having a panic attack, which I soothed with thoughts of how I wish my brain had a tablet that engraved everything I thought. It would be such a smart tablet, since it is in MY brain. It would know instinctively which thoughts to purge and which to keep in a box with a padlock. It would hide the keys on the left side of my brain because the right is always so busy (Ha! I said “right” again).
Okay so now I would need to set out to invent this brain tablet, which made my revelation very worried. I wasn’t born with invention skills and I didn’t know anyone famous. So I rested that part of my revelation in the hope that some Smarty McSmartyson was working on making my life easier (Whoever you are Vulcan, I will buy your junk!).
I was just complicating things and it was only 8.30 am. I just promised myself I would remember all those thoughts rushing through my head. Pinky swear.
Oh and guess what? I forgot. Every. Single. Thought.
I need a brain tablet. I need a brain tablet. I need a fast-moving pen when I wake up in the morning. So while I wait, I’ll write.
