Ego and Resentment. (Another Chapter on the on-going saga of Ego verses the human race the feelings and situations he comes across and affects it has on not only him but the fables its reaches part one.)
It was another beautiful day the sun was shining the birds were sing and everyone was happy NOT!
Yes there was some truth the birds were singing and did this; rain or shine morning and night usually Ego let this slide. However, today he was feeling ODD! Off colour now that was a typical human silly remark. How could you feel off colour your skin was your skin and it only changed with extreme temperature like heat of freezing cold and yet he felt neither of these why because he was not human.
Perhaps he had the famous Common Cold, which killed the aliens in the War of the Worlds; personally he preferred the original music version with Richard Burton voice acting out a radio show. He also liked the music and the song For ever autumn was a strong favourite. Then there was this latest social media expression Man Flu or the other famous excuse a virus which then said had to take its course and did not give antibiotics for. Strange he had always thought a virus was something the computer got. (yet another man made social media statement which often led to the term throwing a sickie because they fancied the day off to watch the latest sports/show/event etc.) The ladies too had used this sickie term for a manner of different excuses. So it was obviously fair game!
(Human’s did like to give themselves machine glitches which somehow ended up giving them more trouble and more expense then a basic cold .He loved the terminology Fire wall it expresses such a joy of heat and protection but even that ended up being flat when he found out again it was just protection. He hated protection silly stuff (The Box was paying now for security and private protection) When could a good old honest meddle could cause massive issues had now got protection Boring…..
Whatever, this feeling was he had plenty of it. Strange he enjoyed most of the human’s bug’s greed, envy, jealously. But this one was definitely playing havoc with his digestion and it was keeping him up at nights.
What was causing this indigestion, he racked his brains to try and think what was causing it the trouble was when he thought too much he tended to over think end up with a headache well that was what humans called it he thought it was more a pain in the b.m because that was just as painful and the upset stomach. Strange he was not human yet somehow every time he got involved with mother earth he definitely ended up feeling ODD. Next he end up down the local and after a few drinks he couldn’t remember who, what, when, why ,how and where then another memory of a history teacher telling the class if they used all these words in a question that they get 50% of the mark even without writing about the subject at hand. This he liked and had used it for many situations in the past along with another trick was answer a question with another question it fools your opponent.
(Note to Self), stop giving away information which can be used at you at another date.
Was he becoming soft in his old age? Was it due to the coming of the season?
No he did not think either of these was responsible for today’s actions of events.
