Critical Minds & Critical Spirits
It occurred to me tonight in the bathtub - you know, from whence all deep thoughts come - that one of the risks of having a sharp, critical mind is the propensity to develop a harsh (blunt?), critical spirit.
Then again, I'm the son an alchemist, and I sat in the bathtub having just washed down a Melatonin tablet with Alka-Seltzer and a splash of Bombay Sapphire. Plus, I haven't had much sleep lately - hence the Melatonin, etc. So maybe it's just the fuzz talking.
Oh, hey, I almost forgot to pack my pipe! Apparently my little brothers have all taken up pipe-smoking with our soon-to-be brother-in-law. I don't even know what to say about that, other than perhaps, "Just don't come cryin' to me when they start smokin' other stuff." But, of course, I don't disapprove.
