On a bright, sunny summer’s day you are cheerfully walking along the sidewalk on your way to a pre-determined visit to your doctor at the poorly and generically named ‘Downtown Medical Plaza’ when, quite suddenly, as you pass your reflexion in the wall of shop windows, your reflexion decides that now – on the bustling midday sidewalk – is precisely the right time to illustrate that it is, in fact, a fully functioning and sentient entity with an entirely autonomous life.
It abruptly ceases walking in stride with you and prompts a casual conversation on the decision to consult your doctor about the erectile dysfunction which you both, rather peculiarly, seem to share.
As a rational being, would you…
A) Act as though such an unexpected and somewhat paranormal activity is a common daily occurrence experienced by millions and thus engage in idle banter?
B) Scream in abject horror and confusion and run wildly in the other direction?
On the other hand, if your are standing on a sun-drenched and well-travelled street corner, engaged in idle banter with your reflexion in a store window on the relative merits of discussing erectile dysfunction with your doctor, perhaps you have more serious issues to enquire about than simply not being able to perform to the apparent satisfaction of you or your partner. Serious side effects such as a sudden decrease in your ability to comprehend reality may require immediate medical attention.
