I'm talking about normally sane folks who get inspired and fall off the edges meant to keep us normal..... whatever that is.
Now.... I am not talking here about just irrationally pranky fun stupid....... like the time I painted my old Volkswagen a bright safety orange glow color. Hey... that was a no brainer... Dad had all that old paint around .... and there was one of those old canister vac's in the basement with all these crazy attachments.... so it seemed logical to paint that sucker rather than fix the rust spots. Man! I got paint on the wheels, the windshield...everywhere! I get a second chance at something like that again.... Whoa...I will use a brush instead!
Nope.... I am talking really really stupid.....something that seems to have a clarity no one else can see or understand or appreciate. Something that must be siezed with both hands, maybe even a couple of feet, and swirled through the air like a giant Japanese kite or something. And people would say...."Boy, was that stupid" but still have an air of reverence and awe in there voice as they say it. That's what I want. I was thinking of moving to Montana and starting a Dental Floss Plantation, just like the Zappa song. Ya, not original......and I have checked the catalogs and nobody has floss seeds.
So..... iffen anyone out there has an idea....lemmee know. Write me a song or dance me a letter.
Life is stupid. I want to embrace it. The alternatives seem so drool.
