Unicorns and Tribbles

I've went traveling recently. To far off places of mystical wonder and unicorns!

...and by "mystical wonder" I mean hotels and by "unicorns" I mean airports. Today, I share with you, a tale.

I was sitting in the unicorn waiting for my flight home peacefully reading the Sunday comics. The area around me was fairly crowded with people also waiting for the same flight. It hit me hard then... an inexplicable urge that took all my will to resist. I desperately wanted to look up and shout, "WAFFLES!", after which I would go back to quietly reading my comics like nothing had happened.

This is not the first time I have wanted to do this. There is just something about shouting a random word in a somewhat crowded area... just for the hell of it. As far as I know, I am the only person who has wanted to try this. Granted, I haven't volunteered this information before either so I really wouldn't know the secret shouting desires of anyone else.

The inner Spock in me tries to make logical sense of this phenomenon while my inner Kirk shouts at him, "Fuck you Spock! Humans are illogical! Bones, you can figure this out can't you?" And my inner McCoy is all, "Damn it Jim! I'm a doctor, not a engineer! I can't fix this faulty wiring!" AND THEN TRIBBLES ARE EVERYWHERE!
