I drunk dialed you on Thursday
It wasn’t sad but it was funny
And towards the end it was sleepy
That’s all I took from it - I remembered how still and warm you made me feel when it was just you and me…no holds barred.
I loved the man you allowed yourself to be when you were mine.
I still do.
Raymond Chandler reminds us to stay humble, as our wits are about as eternal as the food turning soft in our fridge (I’m looking at you cabbage…).
“Cleverness, like perhaps strawberries, is a perishable commodity.”
I find quote-hoarding to be a fabulous method of borrowing the knowledgable thoughts of others when my own fails.
Crazy Monster is still thinking about it.
George Bernard Shaw warned us to “Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.”
Shaw is a fabulous person to quote, I rely on his words liberally and often. Also, full disclosure that I’m an anthropology major by trade and got a substantial kick out of fitting the ‘armchair anthropologists’ joke into this one (a term that refers to academics who don’t venture too far outside the library and hide from actual fieldwork – a crime anthropologists were especially guilty of in the early years of the discipline).
