Quick draw synapses
Yes, relaxation. Sitting around on the balcony of an idyllic guesthouse, sipping my coffee, watching all these college kids stream past, one starts to reminisce one's wonder years.
Ahhh, yes. College. Such sweet memories of all those wonderful friends, of all those bunked classes, of all those times we hitched a ride on basically any available means of transport - be it bullock cart or flatbed trailer - to get back to civilization... ahh, yes, those we fun days indeed...
Synaptic Lockdown Mechanism HQ *alarm bells blaring* This is Gen. Grey Matter. Code Red everyone, the nincompoop is at it again, trying to fire the Forbidden Synapses. Sources tell me that we are in an alcohol deprived zone... We need to stop him before it gets too late... Battlestations everyone, battlestations !
...great friends, great times, indeed. I remember the time, L refused to bunk college coz it was too hot outside and me and P wanted to get to the city pretty bad. There was someone else there with us that day...
*red lights, sirens going off*
Lt.: Sir, he is getting too close.
Gen.: I know, Lt., I know.
Lt.: Sir, shall we initiate shutdown ?
Gen.: Not yet. Deploy Plan DD.
Lt.: Plan DD ! Are you sure, sir ?!?!
Gen.: Just do it, godammit !
... ahh, P. What a body ! Man I remember the time she was wearing that wonderful dress for the party at R's. Dancing with her was heaven in two cups of joy ! But I didn't go with her to that party... Who did I go with to that party ?
*Call from Hippocampus Command*
Command: Gen., we've held him off for as long as we can. He is right at our doorstep... We can't hold off these synapses for ever ! We need reinforcements !
Gen.: I'm givin it all I got, sir !
Lt.: We are losing him, sir ! It's too early to initiate shutdown !
Gen.: I know Lt., I know. What I wouldn't give for a sign of some vodka now !
... I went with ... her ! Goddammit !! Why did I have to think about her now ?!?!?! Damn you, brain !
*Death and destruction reigns, defeated, Gen. Grey Matter, lies bruised*
Rally the troops ! We were caught off guard today, he fired them Forbidden Synapses too darn quick. But someday men, someday, we shall prevail ! Time, shall show them axons for their true worth... revelling in memories long dead... move on men, move on. There are other days, other battles.
