Joan if you are still confused welcome to "my world".

That was very funny. I guess my friend didn't care if she'd be homeless, cause the husband would be too, whoot hoo, that is very funny. I'm guessing that's how Bill would have put it.

I changed that post to read bizarre reaction because you said she was happy about it and I went the normal direction that she would be angered by it.

Joan S said...

Well, I would have thought so too. But no, she was very happy about it. They are so creepy.

Yeah I know........in the time it took to read your comment and get the blank field up to answer it my mind switched back to normal thinking and how a normal person would not find joy in her spouses unemployment. The way they think is something Joanna As mun described as watching water run uphill. Their whole existence runs counter to normality. And they seem to live in a la la land that runs counter to the world we are forced to live in. They see themselves as some free spirited Picasso and really they are just assholes.

If we understood it we would be a Picasso painting. In a way, its kinda good we don't remember too much, or we would be crazy.

I'm too tired to be crazy. Crazy people sapped the strength it takes to be quirky and eccentric. So the world will have to wait for me to die and be reincarnated before it gets to enjoy my unbridled genius.

Check my comment on Q's last post. Only way to figure them out is go nutso yourself.

As long as they're in your head, they win.

Yeah I get you M-fan. Have you read the poisoned well allegory?


“Once upon a time, powerful wizard, who wanted to destroy an entire kingdom, placed a magic potion in the well from which the inhabitants drank. Whoever drank that water would go mad.

The following morning, the whole population drank from the well and they all went mad, apart from the king and his family, who had a well set aside for them alone, which the magician had not managed to poison. The king was worried and tried to control the population by issuing a series of edicts governing security and public health. The policemen and the inspectors, however, had also drunk the poisoned water, and they thought the king’s decisions were absurd and resolved to take notice of them.

When the inhabitants of the kingdom heard these decrees, they became convinced that the king had gone mad and was now giving nonsensical orders. The marched on the castle and called for his abdication.

In despair the king prepared to step down from the throne, but the queen stopped him, saying: ‘Let us go and drink from the communal well. Then we will be the same as them.’

And that was what they did: The king and queen drank the water of madness and immediately began talking nonsense. Their subjects repented at once; now that the king was displaying such ‘wisdom’, why not allow him to rule the country?

The country continued to live in peace, although its inhabitants behaved very differently from those of its neighbors. And the king was able to govern until the end of his days.”
