i heard about a man who called his brain Becky and said "it's just a 3 pound lump of meat" he said "we don't say 'I piss therefore I am'" he said "your brain is not you" I could give my brain a name too and tell it where to go when it tells me bad stuff about myself I could have proper dialogues in bed at night while the galaxy spins or on the toilet while I scrunch bog roll viciously Mo said "I tell Becky: 'Stop saying those things and tell me what I can do about it.'" I like his quiet, bossy tone. He's a big-shot entrepeneur but even I can tell Old Smokey a thing or two "Fabulous ideas, my friend, but frankly, your attitude went down with the Titanic." What would you call your brain?
