Lamont and Dude Discuss Selective Memory

“C’mon, Lamont! The sun is shining, the waves are breaking, it’s a beautiful day.”

“It’s always a beautiful day.”

“You’re a grumpy pants this morning.”

“Same old, same old, blue sky, sun shining, waves breaking.”

“If I were you, I wouldn’t complain about that. It’s better than…”

“You’re going to say ‘Ice Age,’ am I right?”

“Well, yeah, I was…”

“That was great!”

“No it wasn’t. It was cold and hard to find food.”

“You did all right.”

“Well, yeah, I did all right, but the secret then like now was just to go with the flow.”

“Ice flow. I was thinking back and you were not always a top predator back then.”

“I wasn’t?”

“No. You just have a selective memory and you think of your lifetimes all as having been sabre toothed tigers, velociraptors and whatnot, but Dude, you were a squirrel.”

“Squirrel?”

“Where?”

Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with three years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past iterations. This gives them a unique perspective on life, the universe and everything.
