If you like, you can pretend that none of this is really happening.


Or you can pretend that it is.

And give your mind a little adventure.


You can always remind yourself later

that these are things that someone else has thought of.

Not you.


But for the next 75 minutes,

you will be thinking them, too.


And if you can convince yourself

that none of these ideas has ever crossed your mind.

And never will.

And never could.


If you can do that…

...What a waste of 75 minutes that will be.
