A man looked into his head and found no thoughts or ideas there.
He asked his wife, “Honey, have you seen my thoughts? I was under the impression I still had some.”
“I think you used them all, actually,” she replied and went back to a job-related project of no relevance to this episode.
“Hm,” was all he said and then considered his options going forward — either despair or resignation, it seemed.
What choice he made, I actually don’t know. If pressed, though, I’d guess the latter — just from the available information, I mean.
