Requiem for My Brain

There was going to be more, so much more to this post – and you shoulda been in my head while I was thinking about it. It was awesome – but I’ve run into a bit of trouble.

I may have killed off the brain cells that came up with it.

And it’s too bad. I really liked those brain cells. They helped balance my checkbook, came up with excuses as to why I couldn’t attend whatever it was I said I would attend and was now going to wienie out of, and held the secret to some of my better blog ideas.

Dammit.

The other thing that those brain cells did?

Kept me from going to three parties in a row. That’s right: tonight are Parties Two and Three in the Halloween Party Trifecta. Last night was Area 52. Tonight is Sally and Brian’s followed by crashing Eugene’s.

Ha ha. Eugene doesn’t know it yet, but he’s got a good half-dozen more people going to his party than he’s invited.

Those brain cells would’ve kept me from going, but now?

As my Dad likes to say, you can tell someone from the family, but you can’t tell them much.

I get the loss of brain cells. Something happens the older you get. Your cells disappear with age.

Ugh....Hello?

Brain cells sell ! Out here, goat brain is such a delicacy !

And you may ask..'goat brain ?' !! In the age of the Swine Flu a bit of sheepish attitude helps !

You're lucky Pearl. I never had those brain cells to begin with!

Well, you know, your brain dumps 50,000 cells a day. Too bad we can't select the ones we don't want anymore.

Classic line to finish with doll. Very inspired.

3 halloween parties sounds just right!

Cell death means absolutely nothing to me, I haven't used my brain in ages and ages anyway.

Its the collagen I miss...

Losing brain cells eh? It's like the old saying goes: "Where are my keys?"

Secretia said...

I get these great ideas in the shower but they go down the drain or something!

Madame DeFarge said...

To lose them, you must first have had them. And they may have been bad brain cells, rather than Mrs Sensible Head brain cells.

Not The Rockefellers said...

leave them alone and they'll come home dragging their little axon terminals behind them...

I've never lost any brain cells. I've had quite a few migrate and become thigh fat cells, though.
