seemed like the first mot of the second seven of the dawn of Skip's
short life as an obscure frwoa writer somewhere between the dawn of the
dawn of time and 1:12 Monday morning. If his memory was working
at all, Skip was pretty sure he had little or no memory of anything
before it. Yet if he didn't, then why did it seem like the first
mot of his second seven rather than the first of the first? Skip
got very dizzy at this thought; so much so that he didn't even consider
that the known universe might need some sort of naming before he
thought himself into it, and unconsciously bypassed this first task and
went straight to his second.
to what to actually do
next, Skip had a faint inkling that something or
other about his purpose in life had been already established. If
he'd had no such inkling, he might have pondered heading off on
a great and wonderous journey of self-discovery and enlightenment

last part of \ a complete breakfast \ .com But, since he did, all
he could ponder was the nagging feeling that there was something he was
supposed to be doing. Precisely, to write the catylist frwoa of
the entire 88 X 10 to the unknownth year progression of Okuaka before
7:77 that evening. While it seemed a pretty liberating task, it
still felt like an violation of originality to be denied the writer's
right to think up a more original one.
Skip exclaimed aloud. Then thought silently, "That's would I should write about. But what is it? What does it mean?"
suddenly dawned on Skip that "Okuaka" was the first thing that he or
any writer (or anybody, as far as Skip knew) had ever decided to write
about--or even say--and was hit with a battle hammer rush of
nostalgia, deja vu, and regret that it was someone else's fault he
have a more interesting topic. Out of everything anybody could
write about, what was so special about Okuaka? Since no one had
ever explained the innapropriateness of copyright infringement to
him--especially in the most important fractal work of art of Okuaka's
entire progression--Skip decided to risk remembering something someone
once said to the producer of the first episode of a space battle saga
with strange aliens and trippy glowing swords of light. They had
said, "Of all the things you could do, why in the !@#$ing hell would
you do this?"
Imagining the memory that the saga became as popular
as deep fried twinkies (a trademark he suddenly decided no one should have a
problem with him thinking about given his total isolation from any sort
of trademark law whatsoever), Skip took comfort in the chance that this
story about Okuaka would be all the rage at some point or another in
the progression of... of... "Of Okuaka!"
Saying his second and
third words led Skip to a doubly strange deja vu akin to the feeling
he'd had after he'd said his first. He took a moment to
thoroughly quantify everything he was sure he'd ever said as a sentient
being, and brought up a colorful slide presentation in the empty
conference room of his mind.
pie chart of the ratios of particular words was heavily dominated by
the words "Okuaka" and "of." "Okuaka" took up an entire two
thirds of the pie chart, and the latter the remaining slice.
Aggravating his bafflement that the task of writing about "Okuaka" was
already a strange pick, the fact that the word apeared at a ratio of
two to one out of all his frwoa's content so far was even more of a shock to
deal with. Especially since it was only just now Skip had even
considered that his monologue should begin the great frwoa he was to
write. (A thought he now discarded).
thinking his thoughts some sort of story led Skip to story some
more. "Hold it. Can 'story' be used as a verb?" he asked
aloud. Then, upon recieving no answer, figured why the hell
not! For all Skip he knew he was inventing the very medium of
language itself as his story storied on! And since all language
that stories story through require some sort of vocabulary other than
"Okuaka" and "of," he decided to create a bit more of it. For
some reason a series of terms just rolled off his pinkish
something-or-other near the top of his head as if he'd heard them a
thousand--or at least one or two--times before. " 'Bilennia'...
'worflii'... 'frwoa'... 'vifa'... 'bricks'... 'tots'...
'dots'... 'mots'... 'Vifps'... 'Okuaka'... Wait, I think
that one already made the list. Let me check." He did, and
it had. But what he found missing was an entire language of
nouns, verbs, adjectives, and gramatical rules, that he would certainly
need in order to tell a story about Okuaka. He made a mental note
to come up with one, but the lack of a language to put it on paper and make
it a memo--not to mention the lack of a paper and pen due to the lack
of physics entirely wherever the hell Skip was--caused Skip to skip the task and then forget about it
'Skip to skip' ", Skip quoted in a dually strange deja vu: one for the
skips, and two for the feeling he'd had them both before. Perhaps
it was time for the phrase to mean something new. He thought it
would make a dandilion opening to a short poem frwoa, and decided to
think up a good one, but then realized he only had time to contrive a
bad one. His train of thought was approaching its stop and he
only had a mot--had he not--to not
define his terms a little better before he forgot where he had heard
them before. He also forgot the one phrase he'd thought up the poem for that he'd somehow forgotten to even insert.
Moments are mots, and tots are like thoughts,
And so are the trains of them stopping at stops.
Bricks are small frwoas that frwoa tot growers
Confuse, loose, and fruse into writer's tot blocks!
