A Nugget Of...Something - Nations of the Mind

Jun. 4th, 2008 10:16 am A Nugget Of...Something

In the middle of a convoluted and silly dream about fighting alien invaders* and rescuing doomed hamsters a clear quote emerged, and I woke up with it running through my head. "Sometimes the right thing to do is the stupid thing to do."

What I meant was "sometimes doing the stupid thing, or perhaps the thing that appears stupid, is the right thing to do," but I just realized that the way it came out is sort of backwards, i.e. "it is sometimes stupid to do the right thing." Wow, it sort of works either way.




*I remember that instead of planting horrible face-hugger eggs in their human victims, the aliens in my dream were using their human captives to heat TV dinners.

Brain, we have GOT to talk...
