Broadway and 42nd St. and the squash
A New Year(s) story

Sigmund Freud had a dream:
One spring morning, thousands of people who were standing at the corner of Broadway and 42nd St. saw a country road leading out from the third floor of a boarded-up brick building.
The road headed north. It seemed to enter other buildings and it definitely wound its way through the air. A deserted country road, full of promise and hope.
The thousands of people pointed; and then they started screaming.
When the police arrived on the scene, they encountered a giant yellow squash sitting in the intersection of Broadway and 42nd. The squash was about ten feet tall.
It said, “I am Leo Tolstoy. I’m writing a novel called War and Peace. This doesn’t look like my study. Please quiet down. I need to concentrate.”
Federal agents soon showed up. They sprayed the crowd with sleep gas, called in a huge truck and crane, lifted the Tolstoy squash and moved away to an unknown destination.
Sigmund Freud awoke in his bed. He wrote down the dream. He trudged into the kitchen and made himself a cup of coffee.
“Psychoanalysis is ridiculous,” he said. “That dream…I could reduce it to fit my theory, but the attempt would be such a patent fraud, I’d be laughed out of my profession.”
Later that morning, Freud sat down at his desk, picked up a pencil, and began drawing in his notebook.
Strange things emerged. Rabbits with large hats. Lamps with human legs. An unbalanced snowflake. A machine with a human face. A carousel, in which horses rode wooden humans. A road in the sky.
Four years later, the former psychology researcher attained some notice in Vienna and Paris galleries.
Psychoanalysis never happened. Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, who had been scribbling notes about an idea he called “public relations,” showed an interest in his uncle’s drawings and paintings, and launched a career as an art critic.
With the death of the newly formed discipline called “mental science,” metaphysics made a comeback. Hundreds, thousands of authors appeared, presenting their highly organized views of the “reality behind reality.”
It was a fad for a decade, and it, too, faded away.
Leo Tolstoy never finished War and Peace. Instead, he opened a roadside farm stand and sold giant squashes, which he’d perfected on his small piece of land.
Apparently, Tolstoy’s seeds found their way into dozens of countries, and in the early 1950s they were regularly growing to the size of skyscrapers. They were declared a global health menace.
Faces began appearing in the squashes. Hitler. Stalin. Roosevelt. John D Rockefeller. Allen Dulles. And other unknown faces, which were, many years later, identified from photos taken at the time: Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Freddie H Dust.
In the fall of 2036, Mr. Dust produced four tons of gold in his private lab in Biloxi. His starter-material was squash.
Before he could be stopped, he released his formula and procedures, and gold flooded the planet.
The President of the United States, Martha Greenspan, brushed off the problem: “Who needs gold?” she said. “We have credit cards.”
Three days later, while napping in her study, she had a dream. A man named Sigmund Freud appeared to her. He said, “I started all this. It’s my fault.”
When she woke up, she assigned an aide to research Freud. When she was told he’d been a minor surrealist painter, she commanded her Secretary of the Treasury, Monica Lewinsky, to purchase every painting and drawing the man had ever produced.
A year later, the President owned all of Freud’s works, which she hung in the Corcoran Gallery in Washington.
At the gala opening, she told the assembled throng, “I have an intuition about Mr. Freud. I believe he changed history. I don’t know how, but I’m putting the full force and might of the US government at my disposal, in order to unearth the truth…”
This proclamation resulted in four wars, the most famous of which was the Vienna Invasion, during which the US unveiled new “vibrational weapons.”
Owing to unforeseen effects, the planet was taken back to 2015. Scholars continue to debate which 2015 that was.
Happy New Year.
