Time Travel with Andy Warhol: Andy's Birthday

Last Tuesday: Took the time machine to The Factory to see Andy Warhol. It was Andy's birthday when I arrived.

He stopped and welcomed me with a surprise when I wished him Happy Birthday. He said, “Mony, my dear Mony, birthdays are not a celebratory event. Your birth marks your live in slavery. You see being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery. People must begin breaking bad habits and celebrating this servitude.”

I smiled as I surprisingly agreed with him. With a nod of my head Andy brought out a small dessert dish and said, “Mony, do be a dear, help me eat this cake.” 

To which I replied, “I can't. That cake celebrates my enslavement to sugar. It's a bad habit I must break with.”

Stunned Andy paused and said nothing before tossing aside the dessert then walking away.
