Strange Experience

She sits at the kitchen table. It is 4:30 a.m. If she does not finish her project, this will be the 5th (or is it 6th?) deadline she has missed in the last 5 months. She's in a slump. The dark wind howls. A storm is coming in. She has run out of cigarettes.

Suddenly she hears...clear as a bell...the voice of Yoda: "Do. Or not do. There is no try."

Does it inspire her? Does it break her slump? Does it save her from an unending hell of unemployment, scorn and failure.

No. She just says. Fuck you, Yoda! There is so 'try.' Sure, trying doesn't get you any credit. But there is trying. You pseudo-zen muppet!"

No one ever listens to Yoda. Have you noticed this?
