The impertinence of logic

Do stop dragging your feet behind you

Well it’s hard to drag them in front of you.

I think that is very impertinent.

It’s just logical. Can logic be impertinent?

Will the headteacher let us wear stiletto heels?

Why do you ask such a silly question?

You can’t drag your feet if you are wearing stiletto heels.

I wish we could take our heads off at night. So you wouldn’t think

If you unscrew your head and put it down on the table it might have a Bluetooth connection to your body.

So I will still be thinking then?

Unless you can find a button to turn it off.

What about my belly button?

I don’t think that can turn everything off off

No it might turn some people on.

So a button on my body could turn a man on who is 6 ft away from me.

It’s a bit like quantum mechanics.

You mean nobody can understand it?

I don’t see how my belly button is related to to the movement of particles in space.

Well you see lots dust motes in the air

Don’t tell me they are electrons

That’s ridiculous. You don’t see an electron by itself

And you can’t see them with the naked eye anyway.

What about positrons

Do you ever stop showing off?

No you bring out the worst in me.

You pressed too many of my buttons.

How many buttons do you have on your body?

It’s a metaphor.

I don’t see why everything is in Greek

Would you prefer double Dutch?

No no I prefer plane straight-forward words of English origin.

That’s not fair on the Celts.

But they spoke English didn’t they?

No just forget about it the English are descended from the Anglo-Saxons.

But there must have been inter marriage.

They could have had a Celtic lover

But they wouldn’t need to speak then

That is probably why they had them
