I Need A Magic Eraser For My Brain.

brain eraser
My eraser would be purple.

There will always be that one guy. That one guy who means more to you than all the others. Maybe you dated him, maybe you were just friends, but there is that guy (or girl depending on who is reading this).

This post is NOT about that guy. It’s about the need in this world for some type of brain eraser. Like, you could just rub out the bits that are unpleasant or hurty. And I know that they made a movie like that called “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” but this is a totally different idea. Also, it has nothing to do with that guy. Nothing at all. Really. I promise.

The magic brain eraser I’m imagining could be used for lots of things. Like, sure it helps you forget what you wish you could forget but it also could clean your kitchen. And it never gets dirty. And it’s purple. I mean, if you wanted to use it to erase that guy form your brain then that would be ok- that’s what the magic brain eraser does but it’s not all about that.

That night you got really drunk and did something beyond humiliating? Magic brain erase it away. Sure, your friends will still remember and laugh about it but you won’t have to endure the pain of knowing what they are talking about.

That time your beloved fish died after you only had him 2 days because you don’t really know how to take care of pets? Erase it. I mean, the pet shop might stop letting you buy fish and you won’t be able to figure out why but I’m pretty sure you will be really happy.

That time you burped accidently at a lunch with your crush. Erase that and quickly. You will be much better off.

That huge fight you had with someone you love. Magic brain erase it. I mean, I can’t promise that person will start talking to you again but at least you won’t know why and then it’s like -hey they just stopped talking to you for no reason, so they’re the jerks.

I’m going to be honest with you guys. This post might be just a little bit about that guy. And even if I could I probably wouldn’t erase him, although I probably should. Also, I would really like to forget that thing about me killing my fish, because that happened and it really hurts. Anyone else need a magic brain eraser? Remember it would be purple…..

Also, this song perfectly fits my feelings about this: Hurricane Drunk

Also, you should just listen to Florence and the Machine.

    PS Several Days later: I looked up Florence and the Machine. I love them. What other music you got? I am always looking for new music.

    1. I’m so glad. I am obsessed with Florence. Other current favorites include Mumford & Sons, Marina and the Diamonds, and B.O.B. All very different sounds but I pretty much love all music so my tastes are all over the place.

  2. Just between you and me, I think your brain is absolutely awesome. 🙂

    The purple brain eraser idea does have merit of course, but I choose to look at those memories; no matter how painful or humiliating, as good learning exercises. (sorry for getting so serious there, I didn’t mean it! I suppose I could use one of those erasers right now!)

    Is there a danger that our “brain paper” might get too thin if we keep erasing a memory and putting a new one on top of it? That’s the only potential hazard I can see.

    1. No- it never gets smaller. It’s magic, remember? And yes, I can see your point about learning opportunities but some things are just humiliating and you don’t always get the silver lining of a lesson with them. Not that I would know, I don’t remember ever having any of those things happen to me……

      1. Haha, I can’t believe I forgot, I think someone’s testing a prototype on me. Maybe it’s me, erasing the fact that I’m erasing my thoughts!

        You are right, sometimes there us no lesson or silver lining. This eraser needs to happen.

  3. You are a genius! Fill out the prototype details, I have a backer, together we can rule the world! Then possible use the brain eraser on you….and then it’s all me 🙂 and I promise not to use the hairbrush

    I wore a purple shirt to work today. I looked great and it was confirmed by everyone. I wouldn’t want to erase today. But for other “less than” days, it’d be nice. Oh and this blog post is definitely not about that guy 😉

  5. Sometimes I think we’re brain twins (I almost just wrote brain twits) because I have been thinking about how I’d really like to erase that guy out of my life…he’s too nice. Go away, nice boy I will never be with because I messed everything up! GO! ERASE!
    I like the purple idea. Reminds me of that book about the boy with the purple crayon. Only…not.

    First off you need to blog about that night that you got drunk and did something humilating! Yea, that sounds awesome!
    Second, I would magic erase all the times I fell in front of the popular kids in school.

  7. I could definitely use a brain eraser! (And purple is way better than pink, so, yay!)

    It might be nice to add the feature of being able to erase the brains of other people too, so those embarrassing moments were erased from your *friends’* brains as well as your own.

    Then again, I wouldn’t want people just erasing my brain willy-nilly, and it probably wouldn’t be polite to erase another person’s brain anyway, so, uh, maybe you can just erase my suggestion from your brain.

  8. Sign me up for one too. I waste at least half an hour every night when I go to bed reliving embarrassing and/or regrettable moments. Wish I at least could say I was wiser for those moments, but no. Sigh.

  9. I would LOVE a brain eraser. And it is only very slightly because of *that guy.*

    Does my brain eraser have to be purple? Could it be available in other colors as well? Green or blue might be nice too.

    1. Sorry at the moment they only come in purple. We will take your green and blue suggestions under consideration. Although, since this doesn’t really exist yet, I suppose it could be any color you want.
