Format: Hardcover
Goats huh? I too once know a goat, many trains ago, in fact, by the eastern seaboard, in and out of wharferies, trying to find my way to the Academe as I hoped to procure a job position, as it were. Not like the Biblical Job, who was a real Tom, but more in the sense of a monetary nozzle. How can one procure "books" as it were, if they are lacking in liquid mammon, so to speak? In fact, I wouldn't even be alive right now were it not for the sweet sweet sweet fat-free grapes that Mrs. Daywold dribbled into my glottis. Verily! As we move forth in this sadly unlaureled world, we must confront a terrible fact which only discloses itself to be a falsehood of unrivaled viscosity: What Is To Be Gub? Who is Gub? Who am Gub, is perhaps a finer question - finer as in sand, not as in jewelry. Gub, a brother of Job? These are questions Mrs. Dewald declines to answer in a most rue-worthy fashion - fashion as in most displeasing articles of clothing, a metaphor I use here in lieu of any meaning, for there is ~NO~MEANING~ to a name - names are sigils and sigils are not hay! How may I feed my horse? I cannot always be taking trains, their schedules susceptible to flex and dead animals on the track - such as the horse I was once riding before this tome fell out of a passing car and nearly killed me! Stage 1 of Flux: my child, an unincorporated state of being per Marx (see: Paragraph H, volume Q). What you may ask, does "Marx" have to do with "Thucydides" you may ask yourself? Or peradventure you are asking yourself why did I read this book that was flung at my from a speeding Honda Civic? Because, dear friend, dear old wizardrly friend, with your owl-like beard and walnut-like eyes, because books are meant to be read! Have you ever tried talking to a book? Or using one as a basketball hoop? It. Simply. Does. Not.Read more ›
