My favorite Garrison Keillor quote goes like this:
“I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.”
That’s what today’s guest post writer does on his blog, The Next Delusion. One half of them, anyway. Momus is one half of the dynamic duo who writes the blog with the tagline “seeing reality and looking the other way.”
Momus teams with wife Cassandra as dreamers, parents and data analysts trying to face middle age with a little creativity and humor. They’re regular commenters and six-words post contributors.
It’s Brett Favre with the Vikings. Or the Jets. It’s Elvis, sweating on a Vegas stage.\ It’s E.T., all white and powdery away from home. Not in his extraterrestrial glory. Unlike Brett Favre and Elvis, E.T. can find a way back his alien homeboys and to the heart light.
This blog can, too.
Even with my faithful core of commenters, you can hear me crunch my graham crackers up in here. It’s gotten quiet. Cue the crickets, easy on the wow.
