Week #28: Jiminy

“No! I’m tired of doing what you say.”

“You are? Since when have you felt this way?”

“Since… forever! I feel like you’re always patronizing me.”

“I don’t mean to make you feel that way.”

“Well, you do!”

“What can I do make you feel differently?”

“Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I won’t obey you blindly anymore, putting my trust on good intentions. I won’t. This is my life. I’m free to do what I want with it.”

“But… If you would only listen…”

“I don’t want to listen anymore!”

“Why are you telling me this only now?”

“Does it really matter? It’s now out in the open. And I don’t want to do this anymore.”

“Well… if that’s what will make you happy. Pinocchio? Pinocchio?”


“Geppetto! Come quickly! Pinocchio… He’s gone back to being a lifeless puppet again.”
