My very own pocketable Matrix

Wednesday 6 October 2010, 3.47am HKT

Sometimes I don’t realise what I have in my pockets. Until now, that is.

Notice anything special?

How about this one?

Pentel Sign Pen fibretip markers in hot pink and sky blue

See any resemblance now?

The red and blue pills offered by Morpheus to Neo in Matrix.

Yes-sirree, Morpheus offers a choice to Neo to take the blue pill, where

“the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe”

or to take the red pill, where

“you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

I never knew I had it in my pockets all this time.

But, then, the reality is much, much worse.

’Tis true, me lads and lasses, I really do have pens in ole’ red, white and boring.
