Genre: Humour/Humor – Idiocy!
Oh-no, not ‘That’ time again!
East Rock was really trying his best to wake West Rock. They had ‘Visitors’ coming in half-hour and West Rock needed to be up.
“OI!!!” East Rock shouted. “WAKE UP!!” he yelled.
That got West Rocks attention; he began to stir. “What time is it?”
Not again. East Rock went through this every single year: Solstice coming, Visitors approaching and, as usual, West Rock, totally forgetting the time of year – again – always needing reminding.
As West Rock started to get his bearings, he grumbled the same moaning that he did every year:
“Why can’t they go to Stonehenge or somewhere, why do they have to come here for their ‘Praying to the Stones’ ritual? Don’t they realize that their laying hands on me, whilst chanting some kind of weirdness, doesn’t actually do anything?”
“Just do it” East Rock implored.
So with a heavy, bored sigh, West Rock did as he was told and began to ‘Vibrate’.
How these people thought this ridiculous charade was some kind of ‘Spiritual Awakening’, he had no idea.
But West Rock did know something. He knew that once they laid their hands on him and felt ‘Something’, they would think he was great. And possessing that kind of ‘public greatness’ meant just one thing: He, nor East Rock, would be bulldozed down only to be replaced by low-cost housing.
So, on that fact alone, he decided that ‘Vibrating’ for these incredibly deluded people was, very much, in his favour to do so. And, with that, he quit his moaning, saw the positive, and did as East Rock asked him to: and pulsed away!
