it's tearin' up my heart when i'm with you

  • My brain: "...hey."
  • Me: "What? Are you going to sing 'Tearin' Up My Heart' for six hours again? Because I seriously don't think I can take it. At least pick a DIFFERENT N'SYNC song."
  • My brain: "No...tee hee...I wrote some science fiction."
  • Me: "What? No. That's not our thing."
  • My brain: "It's good. Look at it."
  • Me: "Comedy is our thing."
  • My brain: "We love sci-fi! That can be our thing, too."
  • Me: "NO. Dear god there is not enough time for us to have more than one thing. I'm tired. I barely wash my hair anymore. Last night when I was cooking I was so delirious I almost chopped off a finger."
  • My brain: "Be logical. We have nine more fingers, but how often will we get EXCELLENT SCI-FI ideas?"
  • Me: "Okay. Chill out. 'Excellent' is TBD."
  • My brain: "Just loooook at itttttt."
  • Me: "FINE. But then we are writing some comedy because THAT IS OUR THING. Let's see this idea. ...oh no. I love that. Shoot. I have to write that."
  • My brain: "I know, right?"
  • Me: "Fuck."
  • My brain: "So use your ten fingers to order a pizza and let's have two things."
  • Me: "Ugh. Damn you! I love pizza. And I love this idea."
  • My brain: "Yeah, duh."
  • Me: "I can't believe I'm doing this but...okay, let's get started."
  • My brain: "Great. Now just to warm up...'You're tearin' up my heart when I'm with you, and when we are apart I feel it tooOoOoo..."
  • Me: "NOT NOW."
