Beach of Mucus

When I was young, my favourite book was one, and I can’t remember the name, about how your body works.
I think it may have been called “How your body works”.
But I don’t really remember.
Anyway. The text was all sound and scientific, but the illustrations were fantasy, and therefore fantastic.
Not fantasy as in Fairies and Aliens
As in Hundreds of little people, tiny tiny little people, working inside your body like an enormous factory.
Battles going on between armies of tiny little people and big green bacteria.
Tiny little people running with messages along nerves, while screaming "she ate the chickpeas!"
Tiny little people pumping the heart with machinery.

Sometimes it’s easier to think that this actually happens, that this is how your body actually works, Although I’m imagining that that’s probably not true.
But sometimes it feels that way.
Especially when I’m ill, and everything is grinding and slow moving, all the machinery malfuntioning.
And nothing seems to work, nothing in my head seems to work.
And the only explaination I can give for it is that there are a whole lot of tiny little people congregating in some other part of my body, trying to work out a colour, texture and taste.... Beach of Mucus.
They are all working on the mucus problem.... Every single one of them.
And yes...... they are working hard.

Surf's up on the slime, let's get out the boogie board.

Hope you feel better soon, put a shot of Irish cream in that coffee.

I hope for you that the workers will have soon a long holiday break.

And if there is a battle going on between two tribes, I hope that the bad ones will suffer and die as soon as possible because we need our Coffee brewing and stimulating our minds words and in real.

Are you carrying the sign 'Under construction' ?

Liefs en big knuffel, P
