Question: “Say, look here, where’s it written that you’ve GOT to be ordinary?”
Answer: “Why in The Great Ordinary Book of course.”
One father, incessantly asked his son,
“Don’t you get it…come on kid, don’t you get it?"
He kept up this question day after day, month after month, year after year
until one day the lad, “saw the light,” understood the purpose of the old man’s
badgering and realized quite clearly that he was never going to get it.
“Okay you officers, grab that loose info over there and bring along those loitering
incongruities…throw ‘em all in the van, we’ll take ‘em down town and let the
Sarge sort it out later.”
I had this one, what do you call ‘em…person, yeah, man, chap, fellow, tell me
that in his younger days one of his real pleasures was in “singing to himself,”
that is, he adds, until he discovered he was tone deaf.
In this one time zone I know about, a fellow read in one of those book things
the following: “There is nothing the body may suffer that the soul may not profit
by,” and was so dazzled thereby that he went about repeating it for days:
“There is nothing the body may suffer that the soul may not profit by!"
recounting it to himself for months – Years – until one moment it hit him –
“Wait just a minute here, if there is nothing the body may suffer that the soul
may not profit from, and if two plus two equals four plus four does not equal two,
then there just may be a way out of this mad house that even our forefathers didn’t
suspect.” Then one of his silent ancestors said, “Hah, what do you think You are?”
