The Short Tale of Eddy and Nicky. By CpSingleton © 2016
Eddy and Nicky were crazy intelligent and loved to invent the next big thing. Eddy, however, thought of the now and Nicky of the forever.
Usually thinking of the “now” isn’t a bad thing, but Eddy married his “now” with green pieces of paper.
Nicky had nothing against the green pieces of paper, though found that they restricted growth if worshipped too intensely. He would use his green pieces of paper to create monsters of free energy.
Eddy used his pieces to besmirch Nicky and crown himself king.
Nicky shrugged and toddled off to speak to his wife, the pigeon, about alternating currents.
This riled Eddy more than ever, so he made sure that Nicky received as little of the green pieces of paper as possible.
Nicky again shrugged and wrote that one day in the future he would be remembered for all the right reasons. He may not see it himself, but he knew it was inevitable.
And do you know, although he died alone and forgotten by some, a half a century on people began to say that he was right about a lot of good things.
So, he had a pigeon for a wife and he lived in rooms divisible by three?! He was also a genius who thought of future generations.
Don’t get me wrong Eddy also did some pretty neat things, but he also performed deplorably and the worshipping of green pieces of paper is far crazier than anything Nicky could ever achieve.
Eventually Nicky’s wife ran off with an English wood pigeon, due to his lovely accent, but remembered her first husband fondly.
The green pieces of paper grew and grew and were blamed for wars, corruption, murder, suicide and cheese prices. Which is sad, because on the whole the green pieces of paper were opposed to violence of any kind.
Though such is life.
