I’d be afraid to take Viagra, afraid I’d begin to see in infrared. I don’t think my brain could handle seeing through walls and interpreting heat signatures. If there was another way to alleviate my fear of intimacy, I’d maybe take it. I'm afraid of everything.

I sometimes think of having friends as an adolescent ideal. I want to be a kid again. Kids have friends who like them, at least ones they don't worry about being liked by.

I don’t ever want to tell a lie again, forever. I want to be such a good actor that even I won't know I'm lying. It wouldn't be lying if I didn't perceive it to be so. I'd only be pretending to not lie.

Bill Murray is my hero. That's probably true.

If someone invents a time machine, then a time machine will’ve always existed. If a time machine breaks, then it never would've worked. Purely theoretical...

Do you have one coming? Are you too poor to buy one? I'll help if I can.

Molly Gaudry said...

By which I mean to say, I am often too poor to buy things. And I often wish someone would drop out of the sky and say, "I'll help." So let me know if I can help.

Eric Beeny said...

Thanks, Molly. Quite poor, yes. I'll email you...

Mel Bosworth said...

...Bill Murray is my hero too.

Eric Beeny said...

No doubt, Mel.

...Bill Murray...

what about the tardis? i concur about mel, molly, j.a. and bill. i am required to watch groundhog day every february. after waking multiple times to i got you babe of course.

Eric Beeny said...

HI Audri, I completely forgot about the Tardis. I haven't seen Doc Who in a long time. Typical time-travel paradoxes... Groundhog Day is the greatest movie ever:

Rita: Have you ever had deja vu?
Phil: Didn't you just ask me that?

And:

Phil: Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today.

And:

Phil: I'm a celebrity in an emergency.

Don't take Viagra. I don't have an experience but I think we should start Writers Against Viagra: Because You Go Blind and Then You Can't Read Too Well

Hi Greg, no doubt. I wasn't at all going to. And W.A.V. definitely sounds like a worthy cause...
