My little grey cells

Posted in general dissatisfaction tagged , , at 2:00 am by foodaddict

Eventually, I think we all go mad, from staring at walls too long. For most people the body gives out before the mind… but some of us just succumb to the madness too soon. We let the little shadows flitting across the brain take root, grow and flourish.

And who can we blame, really? The mothers who didn’t love us enough? The fathers who never gave us tools to fight back against the world? Or our own neurons, teaching themselves like an orchestra without a conductor to continually play movement 3, adagio in B flat minor, over and over.

But they are so innocent, these tiny cells. They don’t know that they’re the cause of our agony. How could you possibly find fault with them? They are wondrous little angel gumdrops, an electrochemical repository of all our memories. A lifetime stored in gelatin. I cannot hate them.
