You know that moment that you are trying to fall asleep, but instead you accidentally plan the premise to your next novel and have to get up to go write it down before you forget?
Now I will never get to sleep.
Tanya: "Hey, Brain?"
Brain: "Sup bro?"
Tanya: "How would you feel about giving me these ideas before I have decided to go to bed?"
Brain: "What do you mean?"
Tanya: "Oh I don't know, don't put an idea for a book in my head right as I am trying to fall asleep? That way I can go to sleep instead of world building all night."
Brain: "Oh, well maybe if you would turn off Netflix and sit in the quiet with me every once and a while I could operate at normal hours, but you are always trying to distract me. What are you so afraid of hearing me say?"
Tanya: "Whoa now, let's not get too deep here. No need to attack me or Netflix. Netflix did nothing wrong."
Netflix: "Ya, fuck off Brain. I am giving her some well deserved relief from your hack job of an interaction. Maybe if you would just settle your shit she wouldn't have to constantly spend hours with me to forget all the garbage you keep throwing at her."
Brain: "Well maybe some of us are concerned for her future! Maybe some of us want to see her accomplish something other than another season of Scrubs."
Tanya: "Whoa, guys calm down here. I don't want to start a war, I just want to go to sleep."
Brain: "I am just doing what is best for you, I can't help it that what is best for you isn't always convenient or fun!"
Tanya: "I'm sorry, I know you are right."
Netflix: "Don't listen to him, he is guilting you, just like he always does. So sly with all his allies, imagination, feelings, and the conscience. Unfair playing field."
Tanya: "Netflix, he's right. I need to listen to him if I am ever going to accomplish anything I want to. I am sorry, but I think we should maybe slow it down."
Netflix: "How slow?" *tears welling up*
Tanya: "I mean, we can still be friends, but I think we should limit our time together. At least for a little while. I just need to see where this other thing is going, see if theres anything meaningful there. But I will always love you."
Netflix: "You'll be back. I don't even, *sniff* care."
Brain: "It's best if we leave now, leave him with some dignity."
Tanya: "I will see you around I promise. We can probably hang out a bit tomorrow, just maybe not all night okay?"
Netflix: "Yeah, okay. Goodnight."
Brain: "You did the right thing."
Tanya: "Then why do I feel so terrible?"
