Makes Sense

Don’t think about the yellow duck in the living room.

(What duck?)

The yellow duck.

(There’s more than one duck in your living room?)

Not as a rule, no. There’s generally only one duck in the house at a time, like the yellow duck.

(Makes sense. Have you ever considered therapy, Scribbler?)

The duck doesn’t need it, but didn’t I ask you at the beginning to not think about the duck?

(Yes. But that’s exactly what such things accomplish, huh? This particular such thing brought one to think of nothing but a yellow duck in the living room. We are supposed to ignore the yellow duck? How? It hasn’t stopped quacking since we got here!)

Hasn’t stopped being yellow, either…

(Son of a-!)
