Do you take the red pill, or the blue one, asks WordPress. Well since they ask, I take these ones:
That‘s my daily dose of druggery. I don’t take them all together, of course, there are different ones for different times of the day. This is the first time that I’ve seen them all as one single fighting unit and I have to say even I’m impressed as to how many there are.
My various mental issues must feel like they’re in the Alamo.
Anyway, back to the baffling-looking question. Apparently the terms “red pill” and “blue pill” have, because of a choice between the two offered to a character in the film The Matrix, become symbols of the choice between the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue) and the sometimes painful truth of reality (red). WordPress wants to know which one I’d rather have.
I am a blogger who sometimes writes as honestly as he can about his depression, his derealisation and his often just being a pain-in-the-arse in a bad mood. But in the last six months alone I have also written about how I’d make a good president (don’t need a link, the post was only yesterday), how I once met an alien whilst walking home from the pub, and how I was interviewed for and successfully appointed to the job of God.
So I think I’ll have one of each, please. There’s still plenty of room in the pill-cup.
