I HEAR YOU

Full Disclosure — A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?


All those voices ricocheting around my head! It’s maddening. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could just hear what they are thinking about one thing, whatever we are talking about … but I hear everything. Talk about too much information, this is psychic overload to the nth degree!

Do I need to know what you’re planning to buy at the grocery store, how much it costs? What meals you’re going to make from which ingredients?

How your little sexual adventure with hubby went last night? What you think you are going to do tomorrow? How much Viagra the old guy takes? The state of your legs, whether or not they need shaving?

I just want to have a simple conversation about … what was it we were talking about? I’m lost in all that mental noise. I can’t remember anything. I think I’m going mad.

You’re looking at me funny. Hey, do you have one of those chips too? Oh my Gawd. It’s a freaking nightmare.

Whose idea was this? I see the bastard. He’s over there, look! It’s that guy from WordPress. Can I kill him? There’s gotta be a law … Don’t let him get away! Grab him, he’s trying to run!

Okay, WordPress guy. We need to have a little chat. And I’ve got a chip for you.

  1. I would not accept that chip. The world is way too noisy and full of nonsense already without cluttering up my lowly brain with more junk. It’s everything I can do to expel evil thoughts of harming my neighbor’s kids for screaming all day long outside my bedroom window. Keep the chip!

  2. I think it would be cool for about three minutes and then I’d be begging for some brain surgery to have it removed.
    I think we’d be shocked to find out what people really thought about us!

    • I don’t want to find out what other people are thinking. Arghh! What they write and say is bad enough. To actually hear what they think? How hideous. Quite probably boring, too. Most of us do not spend our days thinking deep or even entertaining, thoughts. My brain is currently deep into contemplating if I want another cup of coffee now or should I wait a while. Hard life.

  3. Hi Marilyn,
    You’re right, it would be a freaking nightmare.

  4. It’s the cats, they are behind it all. One of mine is now wearing a t-shirt – think before you say it, just to keep one step ahead.

  5. Ah, another Twilight Zone flashback! The episode with Dick York! Rod Serling knew this kind of power was a bad idea five decades ago… and I agree, I wouldn’t want to be tuned in to the thoughts of everyone around me, nor would I want them to be able to read my mind (The things they would think about me!)
