Cleaning out the metaphysical closet
Here's Multimedia Editor Emeritus, Biker Dude and Deep Thinker John Lindner with this week's Shallow Thought Wednesday. I'm sure everyone expected it to be on creamed corn. I know I did.
How many of you had to look up "elutriate"? It sure wasn't on my word-of-the-day calendar. What about "salubrious"? EL
"In preparation for Thanksgiving, I spent Saturday morning cleaning my metaphysical closet.
Of course, when you tidy up the MC, you elutriate your very soul. And all such purgings, like, for instance, cleaning your garage, share the same salubrious properties.
Now you can find things, sometimes things you forgot you had: the antique apple corer, the thrice used exercycle, the embarrassing tamborine. (Free advice: you oughtn’t let someone else clean your spaces. You’ll return to foreign ground where events took place and items were rearranged outside your brain’s subliminal catalog. You won’t be able to find anything and you’ll often wonder, “Did the bastard steal from me?”)
Since it wouldn’t be Shallow Thought Wednesday if I didn’t waste your precious time, I decided to share some of the treasures I pulled from my closet.
Quote that’s source escapes me:
"If you have nothing nice to say about anyone, come sit next to me" (or words to that effect).
Foods I will never serve for Thanksgiving:
1. Creamed corn
2. Sea cucumbers
3. Salmon loaf
Why does tobacco taste best after meals and accomplishments?"
