My kitty has a brain the size of
a peanut. But it’s a peanut with three nuts inside. My dog has a brain the size
of a walnut. Turns out we may be
drifting toward some sort of equilibrium, brain-wise. Because my own brain
seems to be shrinking.
I lost a Q-tip the
other day. Standing in front of the mirror, I dried one ear. but then when I
went to dry the other ear, the Q-tip was gone. Only when I had surrendered to
the cruel joke of the universe and reached for another Q-tip did I glance in
the mirror and notice the first Q-tip where I’d left it.
So, although I am often mad in
the sense of anger at the determination of inanimate objects to fuck with me,
it turns out I may be going mad in the sense Alice meant. I’ve always said that
which does not kill me makes me madder.Little did I know, and littler still today.
