I have noticed lately it has been a bit dramatic here at the Nirvana. Emotions are running amok. I have created the following "Nirvana Response List" for your education.
2. slight injury:scream of death
3. slight injustice:scream of death (for alternate response, see #4)
4. slight injustice:punch
5. not getting your way:tantrum
6. really not getting your way:tantrum/scream of death combo
7. really not getting your way when your brother is involved:tantrum/scream of death/punch combo*
*the tantrum/scream of death/punch combination is technically difficult, but can be honed to perfection with practice.
To all this drama I say...
You know me well. We used to hang out all the time. Our memories are vivid. We had BIG plans. We dreamed HUGE dreams. Our connection was larger than life. I may have neglected you a bit recently--for that I apologize. I have been busy. It looks like you have found a way to occupy yourself as well. I don't know if there is a drama code of ethics, but I think you may have breached it by teaming up with Genetics. Drama + Genetics = Love. Drama and Genetics sitting in a tree...
So now Drama, you have teamed up with Genetics and befriended my children. Oh Drama, you are always so....dramatic. Oh Genetics, you are so....genetic-y. Why can't the apples fall a bit further from the tree?
With undying love and devotion,
When I am not here.
