Lamont and Dude Debrief

“How’d it go?”

“It was all right. Thanks for hooking me up to that Youtube video of you at the museum.”

“No prob.”

“Did you watch the show?”


“What did you think?”

“I think it’s amazing we seem to be the only two living creatures who remember all that stuff.”

“I have thought that, too. But then I asked myself, ‘Have I ever remembered this stuff before?’ And no, I haven’t.”

“Me neither.”

“So how did this happen?”

“Do you think maybe it’s, you know, we’re just a couple of rubes who accidentally got hypnotized once when we were hanging out at the beach, Venice Beach maybe?”

“Maybe. Maybe it was something like that.”

“You know, maybe we were watching for the Green Ray and a hypnotist was there.”

“You know, Dude, it could have been a hypnotist, but maybe he was hypnotizing someone  so they could have a past life regression. In that case, it’s both real and artificially stimulated, you know?”

“Hmm. So it’s just coincidence that we happen to have been alive together all those times?”

“No, not really. It’s the paradox of the universe which is simultaneously infinite and finite. As you know, matter and energy are never lost.”




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

    • Don’t worry. Lamont and Dude don’t doubt the veracity of their memories. They just wonder why they have them and no one else seems to. That might seem like a ploy to introduce yet ANOTHER character into the dialogue stream, but no. It would be like introducing a third to Abbott and Costello. Then you get the Three Stooges and between us, I think Abbott and Costello were funnier.

  1. This is also my theory of losing and gaining weight. Matter is never lost. So when you lose pounds, you create a giant “fat cloud” and all some unknown person has to do is accidentally walk into someone else’s fat cloud. Suddenly — 40 more pounds! We all say “I swear, I didn’t eat anything. Suddenly, I was fat.”

    It was the fat cloud. Matter and energy.
