Anyway, I felt some inspiration and spent the past couple days writing it. I finished it tonight. It’s funny, it’s cute, I like it. I plugged in my flash drive to save the file and discovered I had already written the story. The earlier version is also funny and I like it too. I have no memory of having written the first story, but I used some of the exact same details in the second one–like that the girl smells like vanilla, and the backs of his legs hit the couch when she pounces on him. But the stories themselves are very different, making any attempt to fuse the two into one story quite impossible.
I seriously think I may have some sort of brain tumor.
On an unrelated note, I hate the oldies song “If You Wanna Be Happy” by Jimmy Soul. You know the one: “If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life / Never make a pretty woman your wife / So from my personal point of view / Get an ugly girl to marry you“. As a woman, this song offends me greatly. But I think it would be hilarious if some guy actually proposed to some girl with it (‘some girl’ meaning ‘not me’).
