230. My brain is open

“My brain is open,” the man at the door said.

He was a queer-looking fellow, fifty years old, sixty perhaps, in a shabby brown overcoat, carrying nothing but a tatty suitcase. After ringing the doorbell once, without anyone answering, he had rung once more and after that – in sequential order – two times, three, five and eight, until Heinrich had begrudgingly opened the door in his pyjamas.

“My brain is open,” the man repeated.

    I read this and thought something seems familiar. A quick google and I realised I knew the name. Paul actually did turn up at people’s houses and say my brain is open! Brilliantly written 🙂

  5. I hope you haven’t a copyright on the phrase “my brain is open” as I may have to start saying that! Love the creativity of your writing. I would be interested in reading more about this character.

    Great story and I have to say I’m impressed with your dedication, determination and/or insanity for trying to write 300.
