one of my favorite things to do is hear the punchline of a joke and try to figure out the beginning.
or try to imagine how two people walking down the street came to know each other.
or why some unknown party decided it was a good idea to fill his apartment with old automobile tires.
also i like to ride bicycles. i decided it was a good idea to fill my minuscule pad with six of them.
once i get an idea in my head, i feel horrible until i get it out again more or less the way it came to me.
