The Tron Project - DAY 1

So it seems our intrepid protagonist P is adapting to his surroundings. Fewer creepy comments, less blurting, and fewer questions about the nature of aliens. Am I just getting used to it? Is he learning the ways of other humans? Whatever it is, I'm just not as amused as I used to be, therefore, I've started a couple of "social experiments" to add to the fun at the Mattchelor Pad. Project number the first, The Tron.

The Tron is a tiny little device that emits a beep every 10-12 minutes or so. The experiment is this, what happens when said Tron is placed in the living room to beep it's little heart out, but I hear no beep? Beep? I heard nothing, perhaps it's all in your head. Hilarity ensues, that's what happans.

Day 1:.

The Tron has been strategically placed and activated. Living up to it's name, it's fricken' annoying. There are three settings on our Tron toy; beep, screech, and alternate between beep and screech. I chose to have it alternate, a.k.a. the "Dear god make it stop" setting. Unfortunately, three hours and about 20 beeps in, there is no reaction. P is more oblivious than I originally anticipated...But hey, that's what experiments are for. I, on the other hand, am quite ready to kill the Tron or myself at this point so I decided to make it a little more obvious. I shut off the TV right before a beep interval.

P: Why'd you turn off the TV?
Me: I'm reading something, I need to concentrate.
P: What was that?
Me: What was what?
P: The beep.
Me: I turned off the TV.
P: After that.
Me: After what?
P: It beeped.
Me: What beeped?
P: Nevermind.

Excellent :)

Oh, on a side note, I've starting referring to everything I like as "The Slam" to see if he starts using it, I was inspired while eating breakfast at Denny's.

Ok, this is where the plot takes a sudden turn. In Greek drama, this would be the point of no return, where everyone's tragic flaw comes out to play, invariable dooming all....

Mwuahahahahaha! I can't wait to see what happens with thee experiments!
