Whimsy: A Matter – Antimatter Mini-Adventure


Nostalgia and Melancholy were sitting in a bar ruminating over a couple of mugs of beer when a very attractive brunette sidled up to them asking for a light.

A flash lit the room as they both ignited then vanished.

“Thanks” she said.

Reflection, sitting alone in a corner sipping brandy smiled whimsically; at least until the brunette headed his way.

Whimsy, watched for a moment, then fled.

  1. Rene Descarte was sitting at a cafe in Paris, and he finished drinking a glass of wine. The waiter came over to his table and asked “would you like another glass of wine?” Descarte thought for a couple seconds and replied “I think not.” And he disappeared.
