Copping a Plea Over "Take That to the Lion"

"Take That to the Lion" wasn't one of the better efforts but I'll shamelessly cop a plea due to tiredness and a high level of deer in the headlights effect.  There's a significant elevation in the deer in the headlights effect in going from knowing something to be true and Hearing the Words.

Zen Yogi:  you should have written about elephants as in your first thought

You don't think it would have looked like I was pretending to be brave?

Zen Yogi:  it would have looked like elephants and people think you're a gay black Communist who worships Cthulhu anyway so what does it matter what they think

Being demonized by the Lord of the Flies is effectively the same as being elevated to sainthood by the Mountain King.

Zen Yogi:  is that the one with the dragon and all the gold?

Different mountain, Yogi.

Zen Yogi:  you know that's Jehovah's Witness logic, right?


Zen Yogi:  they believe the more they get hassled by infidels the faster they get to Heaven

So what?  Those yokels are probably first in line when it comes to looking for dinosaurs on Noah's Ark.

Zen Yogi:  well, when you use just the same logic as they insofar as infidels will send you to the Mountain King, maybe you need a ticket to Kentucky for the Ark tour.  Tip:  avoid the hookers.

Good point.

This was better with elephants, mate.

Zen Yogi:  everything is better with elephants, Silas.

The Mystery Lady was immediately cool on getting the news but nurses know about the Great Circle probably better than anyone since they're often the ones who are there with it.

The most troubling part of this time is promising you won't ever go ... and then you fuckin' go.  It's one of the hardest themes in love since the same faces anyone that the more you love the more it hurts when one breaks down but it's also the nature of the Great Circle that one will.  I gather that's covered in "Remains of the Day," at least to some extent, but I have no intention of watching it.

Zen Yogi:  how about "The Jungle Book"

I do have it, furry bear buddy, but I'm afraid of it because it has live actors and what if they wreck it.  The book is sacred.  My ol' Dad read from that book in the near dark and it was terrifying for some of the grandest times as a kid.  Every baby Boy Scout (i.e. Cub Scouts in US and unknown what we were in Australia) knows Akela.

Note:  I was an Oz Cub Scout for a short time by myself and then went with Doc.  We were thrown out shortly thereafter.  I don't remember what we did but Akela must have been pissed.

Zen Yogi:  that might indicate a wee problem with authority

Problem, Yogi?  Obedience is no virtue.

Today's Deep (cough) Thought

In the eighty-mile round trip to Dallas, there was one traffic jam and two major slowdowns which gave plenty of time to consider how damn glad I am America spends twenty-seven times as much on the military as it does on the roads (i.e. 54% vs 2% for 2015).
