"All the Hues
That Fit, We Tint"

Siberia, USA: Today, global warming. Tonight, dark, unless you count the stars. Tomorrow can be reached via time machine. Yesterday, who can remember that far back?

The Mirror: The writing of the gods

Websafe: Hello?
Mirror: Am I about to reveal it to you?
W: What, the secret of life, or just your new hairdo?
M: I am perhaps somewhat a ghost.
W: Do ghosts have hairdos?
M: Yes.
W: I suppose the highlights vary with the ghosts' taste.
M: When I luck out, I am wreathed with light.
W: You can't beat a halo for a coiffure!
M: Don't open the blinds.
W: I don't wish to be blinded by your glory.
M: Pluto will not reward you, I don't think.
W: Pluto was, or is, a god of shadows.
M: It is invisible ink.
W: The writing of the gods?
M: You're in my category?
W: Well, I am reading The Gods Arrive, by Edith Wharton.
M: The first few times were followed by a firing pin.
W: How many times have you read The Gods Arrive?
M: I'm out of my league.
W: What is your league, junior or senior?
M: Possibly one day I shall understand these ideas that I do not understand!
W: It's out of your legaue to know which league you're in?
M: A crown.
W: Are you a Peer?
M: Thank you for that consensual validation.
W: I think you're aristo enough to be listed in Debrett's.
M: Explain nothing.
W: Those who are in the know have no need of explanation.
M: Proust-inspired?
W: Proust, I think, erred on the side of ultra-explanation, or at least ultra-description.
M: More than a description.
W: Of course, Proust was inspired by what inspires all great artists.
M: That's funny, I thought I looked all worn out!
W: Well, if you've been reading Proust, I wouldn't blame you at all!
M: Nothing hides from physics, unless it is very small.
W: I wonder if Proust knew anything about physics?
M: No, it's dysfunctional, I believe.
W: It's dysfunctional to be overly weighted on either side of the brain.
M: So A = happiness?
W: Only if B = unhappiness.
M: Here, in this restaurant?
W: In this restaurant, one may choose from Column A (happiness) and Column B (unhappiness).
M: It was something that had to be done.
W: We have to choose what we want to consume.
M: (Laughs)
W: Always end on an upbeat.
M: Did you consider it valid?
W: Bye!
M: Closing in 1 second ... Goodbye!
