Lamarck's Roaches

8 Comments
Two roaches. One fed on bidi ends. The other fed with green vegetables. One born in the wash basin. The other in the kitchen sink. Both lived one cockroach lifetime. The bidi-ends one grew big, fattened up. He also got a hump on his back. But all his life he stayed in the wash basin. Never leaving it. Never learning the joy of flying.

The kitchen sink one grew big. Grew bigger wings and flew out of the sink. The bidi-ends one remained stoned in the wash basin. Thinking often of flying but never really flying. The kitchen sink one never thought... but he flew and flew and flew.

Till he hit a wall and died. The bidi-ends one died peacefully in his sleep.

--These were the results of an experiment carried out by Mahadev, friend and disciple of Lamarck.

  4. The words that keep coming to mind are "Screw it!" I think that means screw the image, screw the expectations of parents, screw prim and proper. If you want to scream, do it. If you want to laugh loudly, do it. Be who you were meant to be. Laugh, smile, love.
