Emergency Superseded By Existentialism

with 21 comments

I’ve sniffed a lot of glue, so I’d like to think I’ve developed a knack for the craft. Now I can bore you with excuses and come up with all kinds of reasons as to why what happened, happened, but the truth is I got lazy and messed up.

Somehow I got the tube of model airplane glue to adhere to the inside of my nostril. What are you gonna do? Call an emergency room? Call the poison control center? Call your mom? NO! You get in your car and drive to your local, neighborhood, 24 hour pharmacy, (remember those Scott?) and walk up and down every aisle looking for anything that will loosen the death-grip of this hobby paste.

It was while walking each aisle that I found myself in the baby section. In this aisle there were diapers, formula, breast pumps, jams and jellies, powders, baby supplies of every facet, condoms and adult lubricants.

Now I know many people talked about the oddity, irony and mixed messages this sends out into the universe, but I honestly felt perplexed. I couldn’t tell what I was suppose to feel, what direction I was suppose to travel with this message.

Are they telling me to prevent pregnancy? Are they telling me to avoid contraception? Is it a promotion for celibacy? Is it a warning? Is it a sign? Is it a threat? Is it subliminal? Is it shouting so loud I can’t hear it? And why isn’t there porn on this aisle for those of us like me who become scared and confused by this aisle?

Worst of all I forgot all about my nasal-tube predicament. Instead I bought a bag of circus peanut and drove by the drive in theatre.

Egg On,

The answer to last week’s riddle was, “because they already have spots”. Despite Scott’s strong argument for logic, Fundamental Jelly wins a year’s supply of model airplane glue with his correct answer. Way to go!

Tonight’s riddle:

Why can’t bicycles stand up by themselves?
