Cookies, Aladdin, and my Brain

My brain & I had the following dialogue last night...

Brain: Wohoo! Make some popcorn, turn on Friends and pour a glass of wine! It's time to P-A-R-T-Y!!

Me: No, no, no. It's 10:30 p.m. It's almost time for bed. B-E-D. Tomorrow is a work day. And also, we don't have any popcorn.

Brain: We can order Pizza!!

Me: What? No. It's late. We need to go to sleep soon. Now be quiet.

Brain: "I can open your eyes...Take you wonder by wonder...Over, sideways, and under...On a magic carpet ride!"

Me: What the...? Are you seriously singing Aladdin right now? BE QUIET.

Brain: But I WANT TO STAY UP. I AM NOT TIRED. THERE IS SO MUCH ON TV! Let's watch a movie. Or play Hexic. Or cal -

Me: I'm not going to tell you again. We have to WORK tomorrow. And I'm going to need you for that - so you need to calm down and think relaxing, sleepy thoughts.

Brain: I'm hungry. Let's eat something. How about Mexican.....or cookies? COOKIES! Oh, please cookies, PLEEAASSEE!

Me: I'm ignoring you now.

Brain: "I'll chase them anywhere...there's time to spare...let me share this whole new world with you...!"

Me: Ugh. You win.

I made cookies at 10:30 last night, poured a glass of milk, and dug in!! They were delicious! Or as my brain put it, "Unbelievable sights...Indescribable feeling...Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling...Through an endless diamond sky!"
