Do you ever suspect reincarnation?

Pablo and Beebz were singing in the bathtub, like you do. She would sing TEE HEE HEE, and he would answer, WE ARE ALL MADE OF CHI! Again and again. I was thinking how cool it was that someone, probably my partner, had talked to him about chi. And how cool it is that he understood it, and felt so connected by it.

So I got curious. I asked, "Hey buddy, who told you about chi?"


"Nobody? Really? No one has talked about it to you?"


Hmmm. I then asked, " What is chi?"

"Chi is everything. It is all we are."

"Really? That's interesting, since you are talking about something that is our life force, so everything is chi, in a way." I was kind of freaked out at this point, but I was trying to act nonchalant."

Then he said, "Other people know about chi?"

"Yeah, buddy. People dedicate their lives to helping people by helping their chi. You know, like K, our acupuncturist."

He was silent for a few minutes, then finally said, "Mine is different. How do you spell yours?"

"Chi or Xi, depending on who you ask."

"Well then," he replied, looking smug, "mine is spelled chiee."
