Elbow Macaroni was plagued by questions:
Do sheep experience confusion? To what is an uneaten apple analogous? Do premiership footballers and milkmen have the same dreams? Do answers have free will? Could two people have an original thought? Why did language never behave itself?
They battered the inside of his skull until he lost consciousness.
In his unconscious state, Elbow Macaroni was plagued by questions:
Is a book moral? Can a mirror be unethical? Can a colour be wrong? If the meal is untouched, is it a meal? How is “pair” different for socks and pants?
They battered the inside of his state of unconsciousness until he escaped back into reality.
Once there, Elbow Macaroni was plagued by questions.
This is what it is like being a child.
