How to get around the rules again

Ever felt like your tip was tapped, your well gone dry or your brain just plain fell out of your head? Well, that's me. My brain just plain fell out of my head. I was walking along yesterday, singing a little song, when all of a sudden I felt so much lighter. Eerily lighter and with a slight, but noticeable headache. I thought nothing of it, actually I thought nothing at all, which is really unusual for me. i thought that maybe I should retrace my steps and see if I could figure out what happened and where things went wrong. As soon as I turned around I saw it. Right there, in the middle of the sidewalk, on top of Elizabeth Montgomery's star it sat. My brain. I couldn't help but notice that it actually IS grey, well, more like dirty off white, but when referring to the most important muscle in the body next to the heart, scientists don't sound very cool saying, "dirty off white matter". Not having a brain anymore I just stared at it, confused and not sure what to do with it. Luckily a kindly tourist saw my conundrum and helped me out. He squished it back in through my ear. We shook hands and went our separate ways. I never did get his name. I guess I'll just call him the "dirty off white matter angel".

Haha, nice. Because I took anatomy this past fall and we went to the cadaver lab I've actually held a human brain in my hands. I guess the upload didn't end up workin huh?

LOL!! So weird you're talking about brains cuz I just saw pictures of mine not too long ago. Fortunately it wasn't a tumor, just a scar on the brain, whatever the hell that is...IDK?

Hahaha! And I thought I was the only one who lost mine with the chronic headaches that I have!
I could totally relate to this nice piece of 'tale'...Great Job!

Hope I'll have my brain back where it truly belongs...soon. Wish me luck!

Stay well and cool, dear Clem.

Hola Clementine!

I´m taking Neuroanatomy this semester and one of my first labs was about the anatomy of the brain, and if we're talking about brains... well, reading about them is more entertaining if it is one of your stories :D, I mean, the brain has a lot of structures with cool names, like the Calcarine sulcus, Corpus callosum and the uncus haha , but yeah, your stories are WAY COOLER! ...I really like them.
you are an awesome writer!

Saludos
take care

Clementine,

Love this story. The fact your brain falls on Ellizabeth Montgomery's star is clever. These seems like your take on how hollywood is very bewitching, and the or more grey than black and white.
