Me: Hey, brain, I think I’d like to write a Whatever piece.
Brain: Eh… I’d rather not, thanks.
Me: But people are clamoring to know my opinion about many things!
Brain: Are they? Really?
Me: I assume so!
Brain: Then they’ll still be clamoring later, won’t they?
Me: But — my thoughts on politics!
Brain: “He’s guilty and a Russian stooge.” I mean, that’s hardly even a tweet.
Me: … okay, you got me there.
Brain: Thought so. Look, post a cat picture, it’ll be fine.
Me: But that’s lazy!
Me: … I see your point.
Brain: I thought you might.
Me: Fine, but you’ll be back to work tomorrow, right?
Brain: We’ll see.
