Do you ever forget to take a shit?
Do you ever forget to eat?
Every now and then being thoroughly incapable of being a a real human being can get a bit overwhelming. Cue a concerted (but doomed) effort to act grown up that somehow survives for anywhere between 2 hours and 2 weeks. Don’t buy that pack of cigarettes, but a cabbage and wheat-bran breakfast cereal. Don’t spend 5 hours after (at?) work on facebook/soundcloud/youporn, go to the gym or put that second ‘learn Spanish’ CD on. Maybe I’ve got the wrong impression about what it takes to be mature but I’m not surprised the ‘adult-drive’ lasts less than two weeks – it’s fucking boring. Yet, when Graduation period comes along you can guarantee I’ll get swept away planning my own psychologically dystopic future with the rest of them. The other day some dirty farmer types bought a dog with horns to the university staff festival. It had a collar and everything (!!) yet people were too mature to say anything about it; too busy walking around in their little worlds of grey, preferring to talk to the cow/deer and the big nosed water-chickens. Anyway, my ‘take home message’ (and if that doesn’t tell you I’ve been in industry too long…) is, before you end up talking about your new Aga stove or how many miles you’ve put on your Audi, just forget to take a shit, for days if you like. Plant the wheat-bran in the garden to see if it grows into a tree and give your cabbage to a homeless person asking for change.
I’m sticking on some new, but 80′s synth-vibe-music to tease out the detritus of our inner children.
