It went something like this…

me: Give me something off the top of your head to write about.
him: I dunno [pause] a magical gnome that shoots pixie dust out his bung hole.

This conjured an image of a blue-haired gnome on a broom zooming around with shimmery dust shooting out his derriere laughing his figurative ass off. As amusing as this mental picture is though it didn’t do much to inspire me… which is kind of sad and is probably the result of my brain being lazy.

him: I have a question for you.
me: Okay.
him: There’s this guild called Assassins of the Dark. How the fuck do you assassinate the dark?
me: With a flashlight.

I wish I could remember more of the conversation to share, because it was amusing and thought-provoking, but I don’t so you’re out of luck. I do remember that it even led into space and how it’s all dark and then there’s the sun that’s all light but space is all dark… or at least I think it did.

The point I’m getting to here though (yes – for once a point!) is that dark vs light is pretty relative isn’t it? You can’t have one without the other because without the other the one is nothing – would we know light if we didn’t have dark? Darkness is just the absence of light… or is light the absence of dark?

Ok, so I didn’t have a real point other than trying to make you think… hopefully prefaced with at least a little giggle.

  1. Tehe, assassinate the dark with a flashlight. Me likes! Genius I tell ya.

  2. I’m so glad you don’t have sporks in WoW. We’d NEVER hear the end of it.
