April A-Z Topic: Dolly Magazine
A scene from inside my mind:
Kellie's Brain: I really don't know what's gotten into you lately.
Kellie: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Kellie's Brain: All this rubbish you've been feeding me! Honestly, did you expect me to accept Dolly magazine without a murmur?
Kellie: What's wrong with Dolly? I happen to like Dolly!
Kellie's Brain: Give me a break, your birth year doesn't even show up in the conversion charts any more! I think that's a definite sign that you're not the target audience.
Kellie: So what? I refuse to be stereotyped by society. Come on, you normally agree with me on these things.
Kellie's Brain: Sure, things like when you decided to read Mary Poppins, or watch old episodes of Horrible Histories. They're both valuable, worthwhile pursuits, even if they are meant for kids. But Dolly ... I can't support that.
Kellie: Well, that article about how to wax your eyebrows was pretty educational.
Kellie's Brain: Educational! I wouldn't call it that. You used to feed me stuff I could really sink my grey matter into. We used to read about art, and philosophy, and literature. Heck, we read Herodotus and Livy! We're better than this!
Kellie: We still discuss philosophy.
Kellie's Brain: Sitting in a coffee shop and deciding what whe'd do if we won the lotto is NOT discussing philosophy! And what about the television you've been showing me lately? We could have watched that fascinating archaeological show on the SBS, but no, you had to watch the soppy American comedy.
Kellie's Brain: I don't care! I wanted to learn about our ancestors, but you wanted to watch a bunch of thirty somethings pretending to be teenagers and singing in a high school choir. I swear, one of these days I'm going to pack up my neural pathways and find someone else to enlighten.
Kellie: Shut up or I'll stab you with a q-tip.
Kellie's Brain: Yeah ... quoting Homer Simpson isn't really helping you win this argument.
My brain and I have always had a complicated relationship.
