I’m reading a Tom Robbins book. For any of you that have read anything by Robbins you may have noticed that his work is somewhat odd. You would never call him a realist. In fact, in the book I am reading now one of the main characters is a dirty sock.
My real life is much more mundane. Sort of. For example, this morning I was cutting the Sheriff’s toenails (the Sheriff being Ian in sweatpants and a cowboy vest with a shiny star pinned onto it) and (and I swear that this is 100% true) one of his toenails shot straight into my eye.
I honestly never even thought that was possible. It hurt so bad that from now on I am seriously considering wearing safety goggles when I give The Goon Squad their pedicures from now on.
Well, maybe it isn’t stranger than an animated dirty sock, but whatever.
