So I'm sitting outside a coffee shop, talking to this guy, smoking a cigarette. The parking lot is full, and this lady pulls in, rolls down her
window and asks us if we're leaving. I thought of being snarky, but she was cute, so I said, "Only if it's with you!" I got a smile out it.
But really? I'm sitting here smoking a cigarette, talking to a guy. Is this what leaving looks like?
It seems more and more often I see people confused about simple situations, like they can't use their sensory receivers to gather information about
their environments and answer simple questions for themselves.
Bill Engvall has made millions on this seeming principle with his "Here's your sign" bit. That is just not right.
And how many times a week do you ask someone a question, and they give you an answer to a completely different question? Did they not listen? I'm not
talking existential, metaphysical, conspiratorial, supernatural or otherworldly questions, I'm talking about questions like, 'how old were you when
you got your first facial piercing?' Simple questions.
People that I talk to on the streets, in clubs (where I have the displeasure of chasing paychecks), and on the interwebs seem to be pretty detached
from their environments, each other, from reality. The denial is so thick you can taste it. The illusion is growing stronger instead of reality
pushing through it, it seems.
