Is the Brain Tree Ill?

by whitemouseproduction

When brain disorders develop, the sickness affects everyone. Be it Alzheimers or ADD, no one can stand there and watch the afflicted suffer and not feel a need to do something. Take my recent experience with the Brain Tree.

A few weeks ago, I approached the Brain Tree and he asked if I knew where and when Louie Kacheek died. Undaunted, I promised to seek out the answer for the forgetful friend and soon had the answer he sought. I smiled and accepted his gratitude, and went on my way, feeling good.

Then tragedy struck.

Not more than a week later, the dear tree called upon me again, "Would you know where and when Louie Kacheek passed away, my good friend?"

"Why, I believe not far from here, Brain Tree. About three years ago. Like I told you last time," was my educated reply.

He hemmed and hawed, looking distressed, then admitted that he was sure that I was mistaken. So, again I went on a quest to find the answer. Indeed, I found out that I was wrong and went quickly to the wooden genius and informed him.

I was rewarded for my generous assistance, but I was perplexed. Was there something amiss with our most noble tree? Has he taken ill with some vicious, mind-affecting disease?

I sought out some tree experts and they, too, were perplexed and very worried. Someone has to know what was wrong. If the Brain Tree was seriously afflicted, then much of the wisdom he has given us is now unreliable. Families would be torn apart, famous court cases challenged, the world would lose all meaning.

That is when I found a miracle.

There, by the tree, a strange creature was whispering and caring for the tree.

I approached him and told him my worries and he smiled, nodding his head.

"This tree has always been right on the money, but when he asks you a question that you were certain to have had the answer to before, it's his way of making sure you are paying attention. Have no fear, he has not lost his touch."

I walked away with a renewed sense of faith in the world and decided that I should take my young pets to a concert and celebrate.

"M*YNCI is sold out?"

Oh well, there's always the park.
