September 10, 2008

As some of you may know, I am not a stranger to waking up and discovering things that weren’t there when I went to sleep.

Well, it happened again yesterday (though this time there were, thankfully, no resins or artificial flavors involved). When I got out of bed and went to the dresser to choose clothing for the day, I found a black T-shirt that I had never seen before. It read, in white letters, “Schrödinger’s Cat Is Dead.” You will be no more surprised than I was to learn that the back read, “Schrödinger’s Cat Is Not Dead.”

I asked E.S. whether he had any idea how the shirt had gotten there; he said he didn’t (and it was way too small to fit him, so it couldn’t have been his anyway).

Perhaps I can extend the thought experiment so that the choices are “Chris Meloni Is Not Naked in My Bed” and “Chris Meloni Is Naked in My Bed.” Because then until Chris Meloni got out of my bed, he would be both naked and not naked, and I could enjoy the first Chris Meloni while ignoring the second.

    A friend of mine has the same shirt. I should check they still have it… There could be a portal between drawers?

    How long can that gum stay in your ass before it loses its flavor?

  3. Alan says:

    Ah, that song brings back childhood memories, wagville…

    Does your chewing gum lose it’s flavor, in your ass hair overnight?
    If your mother says don’t chew it dear, do you swallow it in spite?
    Can you catch it in your buttcrack? Can you heave it left and right?
    Does your chewing gum lose it’s flavor, in your ass hair overnight?

    Considering your history with purchasing birthday gifts, your lack of recognition of this shirt does not completely remove the possibility that you purchased it three years ago.

    Psst… tag!

  6. doctor will says:

    Is it possible that some really really quiet trick left it behind?

  7. Kris says:

    He is hot! And I would love to have the cat t-shirt!

    Look, I did an image search on Google and it revealed a very ‘shocking’ picture of Chris with Dan Florek. Suitably, I was aroused.

    David is right, it is yet another sign of advancing senility.

  9. Aidan says:

    Shroedinger’s Cat makes my head hurt.

  10. crossoverman: Is your friend hot?

    wagville: I haven’t actually found gum in my ass hair for weeks and weeks, so I’m not really able to answer your question.

    Alan: Ick.

    David: Who are you again?

    Jaime: Hmm. Ordinarily I am anti-meme but I may have to consider this one.

    doctor will: If he was that quiet he would have been unable to give me orders, which is really my primary requirement in a trick.

    Kris: If I get Chris Meloni, you can have the cat shirt.

    campbell: Who are you again?

    Aidan: Well, in one universe it does.
