Superfluous Lunch

I was just sitting at my desk when Bee brought me an apple. It was cut into pieces. But I already had an apple today! I can’t eat two, and now I have this redundant, fragmented apple that won’t keep because its innards are exposed to the elements. I don’t know what to do about it. This reminds me of the time I was invited to a lunch picnic after I’d already eaten lunch; I attended the picnic anyway and ate a second lunch. When I returned home, I discovered that I’d also been invited to an impromptu afternoon pool party – but because I WAS TOO BUSY EATING A SUPERFLUOUS LUNCH, I missed a perfect opportunity to float face-up in a pool. It also reminds me of the time young Napoleon Bonaparte was building a diorama for his literature class and he wanted to portray the scene from King Lear where Ophelia drowns, but his friend Luc told him that that’s a girls scene, so Napoleon scraped the whole project and built a miniature bullet train diorama. He got an F because nobody had written a novel about bullet trains yet.

Just one more lunch and you could have floated face down.

Three lunches never killed anybody. Go back to Russia.

The apple problem could have been solved. Hoss and I celebrated.

Ophelia drowned in Hamlet. So, I guess Napoleon would've gotten an F anyway since he got the plays confused.

No, Ophelia drowned in WATER. You pedants and your screwy comments.

How would a person even drown in another person? That doesn't even make sense.

That diorama was Napolean's grade-school Waterloo.
