We like to take funny pictures in our family. Well, let me re-phrase that. Some of us like to take funny pictures in our family and some people know just to go along and accept it.
His grandmother, for example, was pathologically no-nonsense.
He was aware, then, that his nonsense was
Built on the backs of a lot of other people's no-nonsense.
He would have apologized to everyone for his nonsense,
But he understood how little sense it made to apologize for nonsense.
It was difficult enough for him to drive a motor vehicle.
Driving was a function where nonsense was not permitted.
When the traffic light turns green, you absolutely must go,
Whether or not it is the truly beautiful thing to do.
He was the first generation in his family to have a problem with this.
When I read this last week or so on the Writers Almanac I knew I would share it. This weekend nonsense is not only permitted. It's encouraged.
