the stranger

in the weird world of everyday experience …

according to Ashleigh Brilliant … essentially as duly and unduly extrapolated by the perhaps now somewhat yet not quite so venerable Ashleigh Brilliant from his WE’VE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH TOGETHER, AND MOST OF IT WAS YOUR FAULT:

“The landscape of our [sanity] is dotted with odd formations in the shape of relatives, lovers, and various other intimates, all of whose close claims upon us form part of a vaguely intimidating panorama. These strange configurations may appear quite foreign and foreboding to the anxious traveler who goes racing past them in the night, perceiving only the dark outlines of complex relationships, with here and there the light of a burning romance or a radiant friendship piercing the gloom. But this is actually the weird world of everyday experience, and in the dawn it can, for each of us, begin to take on a bewilderingly familiar aspect.

“The well-known phenomenon that people appear to become more peculiar as we get closer to them may be something more than a mere optical illusion. In the final analysis, our most natural role in life may really be that of the stranger, which, after all, is the condition in which we were born into this world (as your mother will verify), and in which we will presumably enter any subsequent reality. Those persons must be truly exceptional who have never felt at least slightly extraneous in their own households, in the unsettling company of their own kith and kin. Indeed … it is often about our nearest and dearest that our [craniums] tend to be unclearest.

Be on guard! Somewhere at loose in the neighborhood is an escaped husband. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4468.

[ Should] relationships be tested in advance for safety, comfort, and durability? ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4367.

You are the only one for me … or am I being [entirely] too pessimistic? ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4368.

There’s no way of escaping it: as soon as you acquire a [spouse], you automatically become one. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4369.

Despite all safeguards, many [relationships] continue to be the result of human error. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4551.

As long as there are [others] in the world, there will never be any real peace. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant & : POT-SHOTS NO. 4496.

One thing you can learn by asking questions is that sometimes it’s best not to ask questions. ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4475.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember why I [married] you, can you give me a hint? ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4475.

Regardless of the subject, saying that you desire [sex] is never totally irrelevant ~~ Ashleigh Brilliant: POT-SHOTS NO. 4668.

Alas, I could never seem to get a working grasp, or indeed to draw a tactile bead on my intended PARASITOSIS IN DOSES. Perhaps it was much too intimidating or realistic for me, so I’ve now substituted the stranger instead. Hopefully now my somewhat unpredictable cranium will now somehow manage to really clean up is act and perhaps fare somewhat noticeably yet perhaps somewhat mysteriously better in the yet proposed and upcoming splatters of BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, WARPED, FUCKED, LACKONOOKY on the YOCKANOOKANY, CONCUPISCENT GUSTO THE THRONG, SPINELESS NO LESS, and the case for some sex marriage, huh? ….. eh? …..

That was an interesting read and you're an interesting man.

We could probably be nooky-mates if only you’d make up your mind.

You always leave me speechless!

But you’re still desirable, that’s what really matters whether you’re speechless or not.

I swear, I'm using this great line the next time I meet someone new.

If you weren't so far away--about 500 miles, that might me a great line to use on me, or am I being entirely too optimistic?

Do you live near Tampa?

How true and interesting that in some if not most households are a bunch of strangers living together...children not being able to communicate with their parents which causes generation gaps...wife and husbands pass each other in the night like ships in a vast ocean...the closer we look at our life the harder to face the truth and deal with it so families choose consciously or subconsciously to do things apart from one another...becoming even more of strangers to one another.

I think I've discovered your alluring trail. Perhaps we're onto something here ... more that meets the eye ... more than the sum total of all of the known senses ... reaching into the depths of the unknown ... of senses beyond mere consciousness.
