Status: O THE THOUGHT POLICE ****************** Driving home from work, I daydreamed about becoming a butterfly. Sirens interrupted my reverie. Uh-oh -- the Thought Police! He looked like a hardnose -- young; lantern-jawed; mirrorshades. My papers were intact; might I escape with a ticket? no such luck. "Step out of the car," he ordered brusquely. I complied. "I'm going to ask you to free-associate. Ready? "Soup." "Bone." "Iron." "Wedge." "Shack." "Love." "Jolly." "Goat." "Penny." "Brain." He closed his notebook. "Put your hands on top of the car," he instructed. Great -- another Driving Under the Influence of Creativity. If they revoke my brain again, I'll never get it back. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
