To Brain, From Liver

Dear Brain,

I'm tired of you. I'm tired of your lame excuses, of hearing it's too hot, of trying to move the muscles off to clean the kitchen floor because a synopsis is toooo haarrd! Suck it up! You've been around for 36 years. You might be starting to lose some brain matter but you still know better!

Focus. Concentrate. Do what you need to do, and stop writing 140 characters to anyone who'll listen every five minutes!

And try to limit the drinking to one glass of wine per day, please? I'm kind of struggling here.

Love,

Liver

  1. So cute. Maybe the two glasses of wine per day won't be too bad. :)

  5. Poor liver. She's feeling a little sluggish. Well, don't over pickle her in booze and you'll be just fine!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. But tweeting is so much more fun that constructing synopses.

    ReplyDelete

  20. A liver with an attitude! Love it.
    Have a great weekend and enjoy the wine.

  21. This reminded me of those articles which used to appear in the Reader's Digest entitled 'I am John's pancreas' or 'I am Jane's kidneys'.

  22. My brain's gone blank on this comment. See what synopsis talk does?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very cute. If I had my druthers, I'd cut back on the Tweets and up the wine.

  24. Cleaning the kitchen floor or writing a synopsis & you opt for the floor?

    Me too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahahahaha... too funny and very cute!

    Tell your brain she'd better listen or ELSE :D

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm impressed. Only every 5 minutes. I think I'm every 2 minutes.

    I'd rather clean the toilets than write a synopsis. (speaking of which . . . .)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ahahaha! I sure hope your brain listens! Your liver sounds like it means business!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You have quite a bossy liver!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice post. I love the graphics.
    But being a man I found it tough to understand - we men are not ruled by either our livers..... or our brains.

    Have a great weekend.

    All the best, Boonsong

  30. Great post... my liver needs to send my brain that message soon ... I am working on my pitch for Nationals and my revision! AACK!

    ReplyDelete
  31. two - three bottles/day, and the brain will be pickled to the point nothing else matters... but liver will likely embrace cirrhosis :(

    ReplyDelete
  32. Easy. One glass of wine. One beer. One gin and tonic...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Tee hee... as I sit here with a glass of wine as well. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I drank far too much last night and I am sure my liver hates me today. As for the wanting to wash the floor instead of writing a synopsis well now that's bad!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Good luck brain and liver. You'll get through that synopsis - you will! you will!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you for making me smile and giggle, Talli.

    Now get on with that synopsis!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have this fight every time or every other day and always the brain wins so i feel your pain :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ha! I ignore all my liver's pleas. Sometimes a second glass of wine is needed.

    It's easy for the liver to make fun of a synopsis. Let it just try and write one!

    ReplyDelete
  39. How about one wine and one pint? Can we make a compromise? Love ya. Brain.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Buwaahahahahahaha!!!!!!

    Oh, yes, I can certainly relate. 140 characters in an otherwise non-literary forum/project does not a manuscript make. But, hey, wine it up....it can only help..... =)

    ReplyDelete
  41. This was cute Talli! Be careful with that liver!! Though I do think that 2 glasses of wine would be okay.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This was hilarious Talli! Loved it, so cute! My problem are pina coladas, the r just so good...oh boy

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOL! I'm glad I can't drink wine anymore because that would be a problem for me as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's cute.

    It's hard to stick to the recommended one glass. Especially when the wine is tasty and the writing is going well. I totally hear you. :)

Coffee and wine for all!
