Conversation Between Two Tripping Kids

Girl: (offers boy a cup of ice.) Here, take some.
Boy (looks confusedly at the cup of ice, and then back at the girl.) What is it?
G: It's ice.
B: (continues to look confused)What?
G: Ice.
B: Are you sure?
G: Yes. Here. (puts some ice in his hand. Boy looks at it flabbergasted.)
B: But what is it?
G: It's still ice.
B: Really?
G: Uh-huh. I swear.
B: What do I do with it?
G: Put it in your mouth.
B: Why?
G: It'll feel good there. Really it will. Trust me, I would not lead you to falsehood. (maniacal giggle.)
B: But it's ... cold, and wet ...
G: Yes dear. it's ice.
B:It's a solid but also a liquid! It's amazing!
G: Yes, ice does that.
B: What did you say this was again?
G: Ice. It just keeps on being ice. Well eventually it will be water and then vapor, but for now its still ice. Barely.
B: I just... I just don't know.
G: I do. It's ice. Put it in your mouth. It's good for you.
B: Are you sure?
G: Very sure. Remember I would not lead you to falsehood! Not intentionally, anyway.
B: (takes deep breath) Ok, here I go. (puts ice in mouth, face lights up with joy) Oh wow, you were right! This is so awesome!! What is this again?
G: It's ice.
B: It's amazing!
G: Good. Here have some more.
B: (hesitates) ... are you sure?

So, I think I'm gonna start a new religion. Kinda just your garden variety functional morality, with some neo-hippy glitter. Lots of music and substances of various kinds and love and joy and frolicking, and volunteering in homeless shelters and orphanages. Kind of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance meets the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. If any of ya'll are down for joining up, let me know; we're gonna be doing some festivaling come spring. :)

I am a starball of Awesome. You should be too!
