Sad Little Discussions…

I understand this is part of being human, and therefore not really sad, but usually I wish I was beyond such things. I offer it as an example of the human creature. Submitted for your approval, in the twilight zone.

A recent discussion, entirely within my own skull, while browsing this web site:

Voice 1 (Creative, Passionate, Carnal): Oh. My...

Voice 2 (Reason): What? That?

Voice 3 (Spiritual, Higher Reasoning): Awwww man… things were so quiet here in the moment. Here he goes again…

Voice 1:     Yes. That. The one on the right. Oh my…

Voice 2:     You don’t need that. You…

Voice 1:     I know. I don’t care. Geez. That’s. So. Cool.

Voice 2:     You do not need that. You don’t even…

Voice 1:     I know. But that’s, just, cool. Don’t you think?

Voice 2:     Well, yes, but, do you have any idea how much that must cost?

Voice 1:     Does it matter?

Voice 2:     Hah! Uh-yeah… Let’s see… Uhhh-yep. As I expected. This is four or five grand. Four or five thousand dollars…

Voice 3     Good Lord!! You shouldn’t even be thinking about this. You should be way beyond…

Voice 1+2:     We know.

Voice 3:     It’s humanly criminal for you to think about that. You don’t even…

Voice 1+2:    WE KNOW!

Voice 2:     But yes, one. Three’s right. And look… Seriously… Come on. You don’t even play.

Voice 1:     I know. (That hurts, by the way) But that’s… that’s not the point. If I did play, I’d play that. This. Just like David Gilm…

Voice 3:     This is sad. Just, really, really sad.

Voice 2:     I know. Very.

Voice 3:    Is this humbling you, two? It should be. I mean, one’s completely out of the question, but you…

Voice 2:    I know. Yes. Yes it is. Well, I hope it is…

Voice 1:    I am going to learn. I want to. I really do. And I am. Soon. I’m not getting any younger, you know.

Voice 2:     Aw geez. Blah, blah, blah. Why are you always in a hurry? Why do you have to do things now, instead of…

Voice 1:     I see. I desire. I feel. I imagine. I create. It’s what I do. You know this.

Voice 2:     Yes. (sigh) Yes, yes I do. Fine. I can give and take. So do it, but do it later, after…

Voice 1:     Helloooo! There may not be a laterrrr…

Voice 3:     Well, that’s true. There really is no later; there is only an eternal now, and…

Voice 2:     Stow it, three.
Helloooo yourself, two: if there isn’t a later, do you really want to spend now on this trivial crap, instead of, oh, I don’t know… Your family? Writing?

Voice 1:     Well I…

Voice 2:     Has it ever occurred to you that maybe later is the proper time for frivolity?

Voice 3:     (Excellent point, two. Excellent, excellent point.)

Voice 1:     Well I… But I…

Voice 2:     And for Pete’s sake: did you even notice that this thing doesn’t come in a lefty?

Voice 1:     Huh? It… what? Oh. (Damn!) Right. Of course it doesn’t.

Voice 3:     I think I see an easy resolution to the moment coming…

Voice 2:     Um-hmmm… me too…

Voice 1:     That’s… that’s good, I guess. That’s a good thing. Yes. That’s… that solves a lot…

Voice 2+3:     Yes. Yes it does…

Voice 1:     Well, sure, and better, I mean, I can be sensible. I can give and take. We’ll just get an American Standard lefty for a quarter of that, you know, replace the pick guard, change the electronics…

Voice 2:     Oh gawdWe’re losing him…

Voice 3:    (Charging…) CLEAR!!
