My son has an interesting way of looking at things. Yesterday, he came home from school with this information:
"Mom, most rational people do what they have to do without any problem."
Okay. I wondered where he was going with this.
He continued. "But some people have this thing called a Fun Monkey inside of their head."
"A Fun Monkey?"
"Yes. It opposes all rational thinking and makes the person get sidetracked with fun things that are more interesting than what they're supposed to be doing."
I nodded. "I see. Have you experienced this Fun Monkey in your head?"
"Yes. It's been giving me some problems."
"What kind of problems?"
"Well, there's this other thing called the Karma Monster. Whenever you do what the Fun Monkey wants you to do, the Karma Monster gets you for not doing what you're supposed to be doing."
"So you're saying you got in trouble?"
I see. So, I guess we all have to learn from Bubba and not listen to the Fun Monkey. Otherwise the Karma Monster is going to get us!
