The lucky life of a living brain
Here’s what I’ve learned about life (so far).
ME: If it’s hard, it’s called LIVING. If it’s easy, it’s called LUCKY. Most lives are hard, that’s why this is a planet of LIVING BEINGS.
MISTY’S BRAIN: The brain is made for thinking. Descartes had it right: “I think, therefore I am.” But where did that get him? Dying of pneumonia at the whims of a queen. He didn’t set a very good example for any brain to follow. It’s no surprise most brains take a different path, a safer path. A living brain is better than a thinking brain any day.
MISTY’S BODY: A body in motion tends to stay in motion in a straight line, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. If the body wants to change direction, the body must fight against inertia. Most bodies are pacifists. The same applies for a body at rest.
MISTY’S HAIR: The hair is usually here today, gone tomorrow. You’d think that with such an uncertain lifespan, the hair should take it easy and live the easy life, right? Wrong. A hair’s life is a hard life. If it’s straight, it should be curly. If it’s curly it should be straight. If it’s long it should be short, and if it’s short there’s not much you can do about it. It’s no wonder hairs fall off every day. Living is stressful as a hair.
