The Land of Adaptations – p.4

The Twin Man’s left head was frowning. “What good does it do us to be an arm that shares two men, I ask you?”

The right head smiled. “While it might be helpful to have two stomachs if you’re often hungry, or two tails if you lack good balance, none of those extra bits and bobs will give you love and companionship.”

The left head laughed and said, “Neither will they argue with you or breathe up all your air!” He looked at the Centaur and winked. “It is true, he would be very lonely without me.”

“I’d like to give that a try some day,” the right head teased.

The Centaur spent the rest of the night laughing at the Twin Man’s jokes, and after both heads had fallen asleep, the Centaur thought and thought. It was very convenient to have a good friend attached to your side, he reasoned, instead of having to depend on fate and circumstance to meet someone. He wondered why he had never noticed he was lonely before. He decided that he would find a companion the very next day, and resolved to head out at first light.

    Aw. When I was lonely to the point of giving up, I walked around the streets of Salt lake City chanting “Nah-meo-ho-rengay-kyoh” (however the heck that’s spelled) for hours and hours, for several days. Soon after, I met my wife. I was side-tracked briefly by a pretty gal in a Scientology studio, but I escaped and found my true companion. That was 38 years ago. I wish Mr. Centaur good fortune.
