A Story In So Many Words (#11: 100) – “Perish the Thought”

After the pageant, “they” drained Miss Oakdale’s 2004’s brain into a pint-size decanter. They were amazed they could extract even that much thought fluid, given that the girl didn’t think very much, and when she did, none of the thoughts were very original and thus didn’t require any juice to fuel them.
So they drained. Added water. Sweet’N Low. A dash of red food coloring (brain juice is not a pretty color on its own). And served it to all the girls at P.S. 112 who were doing “way too good” at math and science.
It worked like a charm!
