As you are well aware, there is a teensy little spot inside my mouth that is very sensitive to the touch at the moment. It is very raw and chafed, but at long as nothing is touching it, there is no pain involved. So, seeing as we’re all part of the same life form, would it be too much to ask you to stop sending the tongue over to probe that spot?
Now I realize that as a brain, a major portion of your job is to receive and interpret information, and to act accordingly. And seeing as how you’re my brain and all, I’m going to have to figure you don’t actively want me to be in pain. But trust me on this one…it hurt when you sent the tongue-probe over there 30 seconds ago, just like it hurt when you sent it over 60 seconds ago. And 90 seconds ago. And 120…well, you get the point.
If we were walking down the street and someone were walking behind us, casually pelting us in the back of the head with rocks every so often, you’d probably want me to ask them to please stop it, correct? So brain, pretty pretty please…if you’re not going to send in extra healing troops to actively deal with the sore gum spot, could you at least back off on the “Does this hurt? How about now? And now?” routine?
