I hope you find this amusing, this short narrative is a "Monster telling". You take a normal thing and with exaggeration make it into a Monster. The Amaygadala is the part of the brain that controls anger, impulses etc. This was a school assignment.
The Reign of Amaygadala
I started this morning, I sensed the change almost immediately, the time was ripe, a subtle shift in her hormone levels, the start of my time, heh, heh, heh. I stretched and pulsed and made my presence known, I Amygadalla. I sent my feelers out to double check, no use reeking havoc at the wrong time. That could cause more problems like, medications to keep things in check.
The boys came back with an affirmative from the ovaries and the uterus said it was good to go. So it begins, I notified the twins Hypothalamus and Thalamus they began to chant, slowly, then pause then chant again. This always gets me goin 'as I smelled the adrenaline that began to course through my world.
By now she was getting dressed, the agitation was causing her muscles to tighten and her heart to pound. It was then I was in my realm, I breathed faster and faster with each breath I expanded now THEY would know who had "the powa."
I commanded the reticular formation to keep a low profile, attention and being alert was not what I needed from this bitch! I started taunting the cerebellum describing in detail the times that she had let her precious captor down. I elaborated on the incident last week , the time that Bella was off in la la land and Ms. Bitch almost took a header down the basement stairs. Bella had been on the clock since, ever vigilant drinking vast quantities of coffee When I had worked her into a state of frenzy I calculated would last until the start of things it was then I became what I was meant to be, the King in his Kingdom. I ordered the frontal lobe to stop his filtering or to face exile. I then ordered all the areas of the brain to run at minimum capacity by order of me The Amaygadala.
By now she was in her car cursing and screaming, pounding on the steering wheel and using sign language that I didnt understand. I cackled, I chuckled, I roared with laughter I felt the waves of anger, hatred and I screamed in victory I AM KING, I AM GOD, I AM THE AMYGADALA! Well, for at least of few days of the month.
