The Loser

Posted on Friday, February 1, 2013 in Arty Farty, Philosophy, Rantings, Something to think about

Well sure, now and isn’t it a while since we played a game?

- I don’t like your games, I always end up being laughed at.

Well isn’t that the point, to have a laugh?

- Not if I feel bad about it, no.

But if there isn’t a loser, there can’t be a winner, can there?

- I agree, but what does losing mean if it’s all the time?

It means you haven’t found the game you’re good at yet.

- Find me a game that I’m good at and I’ll play with you so.

Sure I don’t know what you’re good at, will we just play cards?

- I don’t know how.

I’ll teach you! You’ve a face like a tomato, you need something fun.

- I don’t want to be taught, I just want an easy life.

Sure if you can’t be taught then how will you learn?

- Eventually.

How’s about we get a grip?

- That’s easy for you to say. You’re not me!

Yes I am.

- Fair point.

So what will we play?

- I don’t want to play anything, I just want to watch TV.

Let’s play ‘what happens if you only have a week left to live!’ What would you do?

- Sleep.

That isn’t true. I bet you’d get a degree in Metaphysics or something.

- You have a lot of faith in me!

That’s because I am you.

- Is that what you’d like to do?

Not really. I’d go out and go crazy.

- That’s kind of pointless though.

So is sleeping.

-True.

So what will we do?

- Write a blog post?

What about?

- nothing.

What’s the point in that?

- I dunno.

So let’s play a game!

- Let’s play ‘leave me alone’? I have things to tidy.

You’ll go crazy if you don’t play.

- I think it’s too late for that.

So you think you’re already crazy?

- Maybe.

But if you were crazy then you wouldn’t realise it so therefore you’re not crazy.

- Shut up and leave me alone.

Nope!

- I hate you.

I’m your inner child, you have to listen to me or I’ll broken your face.

- Fair point. What are we playing?

Let’s play ‘Hide and Seek’. I’ll go hide and you have to find me.

- That might take a while.

I have all the time in the world. You love me though, I know you’ll find me.

- Eventually.

I hope so.

- Me too.

    Sweetie, playing with yourself is much, much easier than this. And much more fun!
