Merry Xmas Eve! Today, I spilled blood for the sake of gift wrapping. I was wrapping gifts too fast and sliced my hand with the sharp points on the tape dispenser. It looks worse than it actually is. I quickly washed it and bandaged it. It’s already starting to heal.
This is the first time materialism has actually physically harmed me. Lol! All in the name of the holiday season.
Happy Holidays! 🎅
This Ned Flanders inspired metal band is fan-didilly-tastic!
Sometimes it all hurts but makes sense. Sometimes it captures my soul and tosses it around like a wounded sock puppet amidst a violent wash cycle. Nonsense is my bread and butter. Now and forever more. But beyond it all is a shiny facade. Something akin to a shiny new nickel. A nickel. I wish I lived in the era when a nickel was considered to be a hell of a lot of money. Hell, I wish I lived in an era when one dollar went further than any moon landing. Hope? Wishes? Yes, these are things I desire. These are things I know we all desire. Desires are fickle bastards! Just when you think you’ve done away with them more are born and begin to eat away at your mind.
If I were to truly abandon society… would I miss it? Would it miss me? I suppose it wouldn’t really matter; even if I tried to make it matter. I can hear solitude calling out to me on a daily basis. Maybe I’m hearing things but maybe not. Maybe I analyze too much but maybe not. My countenance is mine and no one else’s.
I tell nothing that hasn’t been told before by many. I write nothing that hasn’t been written before by many. I suppose I could be called one of the few who chooses not to hide behind metaphors and parables. Most would consider this to be a grave problem or disease. But I do not; not at all.
For instance, the other day I was making myself a ham sandwich and became mesmerized by the amount of visible grains in the bread. It was supposed to be one of those “heart smart” loaves of which I believe aren’t as smart as they would have us believe. I mean… grain in bread! Who would have thought we’d see the day?
Don’t even get me started on all the lean meats being pushed in the stores these days.
What I write here I write it for a specific purpose. A “goal” if you will. Smell it. Taste it. Otherwise someone else will grab it up. My heart and brain is a jumble. You’d think they know enough to know that they must be connected and intertwined with one another but alas they do not.
One cosmically ordered scenario cannot and should not take precedence over another. Though, it is quite difficult to imagine this. Because it is inescapable.
I wonder how much longer it will be until we finally colonize the Moon. Or have we already?
I forgot about Funny Friday yesterday. So, here’s something humorous I once heard from an underrated comedian.
Teenage Boy: Hey, Dad. It’s been a while since I’ve seen Uncle Roberto. Is he okay?
Dad (speaks with heavy Spanish accent): No. He’s not good.
Boy: Why? What happened?
Dad: He finally got the herpes.
Boy: What? He got herpes? How’d he get herpes?
Dad: How do you get anything? You pay for it.
Boy: You mean Uncle Roberto got herpes from a hooker?
Dad: What hooker? What are you talking about?
Boy: You said he got the herpes!
Dad: Yeah! I’m talking about the herpes on his head!
Boy: Oh! You mean hair piece!
Dad: That’s what I said!
Boy: Dad, you gotta’ learn how to pronounce certain words.
He ate my sandwich! Bob ate my wonderful sandwich!
My turkey, cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce on rye sandwich! How could Bob do such a thing? Does he not know how many hours I spent making my sandwich?
Well, maybe not hours but minutes. Several glorious minutes!
I even drove all the way across town to get the good turkey from the good deli. Doesn’t Bob know this?
How could you, Bob! How could you eat my sandwich! Why did you eat it?
Do you get some kind of sick satisfaction from eating other peoples’ sandwiches? Huh!! Do you?
I recall a time when you wanted to make a sandwich of your own but did not have any bread. You asked to borrow a few slices of bread and I was agreeable. In addition, I also gave you $5 so that you may purchase a loaf of your choosing.
That was not too long ago. Did you purchase your own loaf? No! You spent that $5 on beer. And when you got back home you didn’t even offer me a beer!
Oh how I loathe you, Bob!
It is no wonder you are a solitary man. But I digress.
Why the hell did you eat my sandwich? Was there something about it that called out to you? Hmmm?
Did the sandwich itself speak to you? Did it speak to you in French or Spanish?
If you are having conversations with talking sandwiches regularly then perhaps you should see a psychiatrist.
But even that is no excuse for eating my lovely sandwich!
Why! Why did you eat it?
I’ve been nothing but kind to you these past few months. I have no qualms with our living arrangement.
And I only slept with your wife once! Only once!
Why did you eat my sandwich?
