Will you STOP that infernal noise! It’s driving me batty.
What – my voice? It’s who I am. Time. I tick and I tock.
You just go on and on and on. Never ending. Never going anywhere. Just tick tocking your way through eternity.
But that is my purpose. What is it that annoys you about my tick-tocking so much?
That never-ending noise – a mindless perpetual motion machine. How on earth can something so mundane be purposeful? It’s relentless. It’s a slave driver is what it is. Be there, do that, don’t be late…… And, more to the point, time is just something humans made up. So we should be able to unmake it too.
Whaaat? You’re gonna kill me off ?
Now there’s a thought. I think I will do just that.
