Minion1 and I were having breakfast outside our local coffee shop and just enjoying the morning together. As we were munching down on some awesome Bacon and eggs, flies began to circle and bother. Minion1 got a bit annoyed at the flies and asked me why they were so annoying. Our conversation cycled through dung beetles, politics, killing them all, God and finally electromagnetic fields.
Electromagnetic fields came up as I pointed out that he seemed to have a fly problem, since not a single fly was interested in me. I told him that I was focusing on pushing out my electromagnetic field and passing a message on to the flies to go away, that I was not the droid they were looking for. Minion1 was instantly hooked and asked how it worked and more importantly could he do it.
After a quick explanation of how visualization worked, Minion1 leaned back in his chair closed his eyes and set to work. The flies of course were fascinated and crowded round to check out this boy and his wondrous electromagnetic field.
He opened his eyes, looked about and frowned at the number of flies, “Dad why is this not working?” he asked. I explained that it takes time to develop these skills and that those who are truly relaxed and practised could control the minds of flies. Afterall I rationaled, Flies have small brains with small electromagnetic fields of their own, we could with practice exert our own fields onto those and commend them. Minion1 was thrilled, so once again he leant back in his chair, closed his eyes and concentrated.
“Dance, my Minions,” he commanded in a strong and masterful tone.
I really should have told him that I had fly repellant on, but this was way more fun.
