Look, it’s Kierkegaard again, frolicking, as usual, without a hat, in the poppies. Sure, those boa constrictors are lovely, until you run out of gas, then it’s back to putting all your eggs in one basket, until all hell squeezes over. Needless to say, acupuncture is needles, so by all means, don’t hesitate to be late. No, those homo sapiens aren’t fakes, their copies of themselves, even if they look like cardboard cutouts made from human beings. They’re really authentic. Regrettably, it can’t be helped.
