“The Me’s” / Memorable Fancies #1255

     “Let me tell you about my operation.” – I tried to get away from Jim but couldn’t without being impolite, so I stood there and smiled. Also I wanted a loan from him so I thought I should stick around a while.

     So I heard it, heard all about his operation. I wasn’t really listening, just nodding every so often. But then he said “the ‘me,’ they called it, the ‘me’ was very sick and so they took it out of me and put a new ‘me’ inside.” That, I heard.

     I wondered if ‘me’ was some new medical term or if Jim was just crazy, off on some fantasy trip. He did look a bit dazed.

     “The old me,” he continued, “the old me is still hanging around. The two me’s talk to each other a lot, but they don’t include me in their conversation. I feel kind of left out.”

     He looked up suddenly. “Are you listening to me?” he asked.

     “Which one?” I asked.
