the mind is a terrible thing

I am beginning to distrust my subconscious mind. I've ALWAYS been suspicious of it, because it is awake when I'm asleep and I never know what it's up to when I'm away. Once upon a time, I believed that my subconscious mind was not my friend, but at least it was a COMPANION that I could get along with.

It occasionally gave me some really fucked-up dreams, but it also helped me study my way through college. That's no kidding. I always studied for a big test right before I went to sleep. I woke up the next morning remembering shit that I didn't know the night before. My subconscious mind never stopped studying.

I often sat down and wrote a 30-page term paper at one sitting, with no outline and no rough draft. My subconscious mind already had the paper composed. All I had to do was type it. Good subconscious.

Lately though, I believe that my subconscious mind is plotting revolution, a coup d'etet against me. It's tired of lurking in the background and kow-towing to my conscious mind while getting no credit for its work. It's trying to take over. It means it, too.

Last night, I dreamed that I could play the accordian.


At least it wasn't a banjo...

Kerry's subconscious mind told him he could be elected president.

I used to turn out term papers the EXACT same way. It pissed off everyone who knew me. I never got less than an A.

I say let your subconscious mind have some fun! Who knows what you'll learn to do ;-)
