Cristy’s dialogue with her (left) brain on Super Tuesday (primary election night in Minnesota and many other states):
Higher self: You need rest; time to go to bed.
Left brain: But there’s political news! What if I miss something?
Higher self: Whether you stay up late or not, you won’t change the results.
Left brain: I wanna watch news coverage and eat snacks.
Higher self: That may be the pattern you have established in times of stress. But it really doesn’t help anything.
Left brain: I’m still gonna do it.
Higher self: I forgive you.
Left brain (while watching disappointing news coverage): Why are people such idiots?
Higher self: Go to bed. People seem less idiotic when you get more sleep.
Left brain (sticking tongue out like a toddler): I don’t believe you.
Higher self: That’s okay. I love you anyway.
