Chainsaw wielding fantasies. Pretty common stuff among siblings. Okay, maybe not. But, I’d bet my brother fantasized about butchering me plenty of times. Instead, he opted to torture me mentally. After all, you can’t go to jail for following your little sister around with a tape recorder and then playing it over and over while you insult every nuance related to her speech. It’s also perfectly legal to tie a noose around her dolls’ heads and hang them in the doorway of her bedroom. Tying her up and leaving her on the landing at the top of the staircase is probably pushing it, but certainly a less offensive crime than murder. It’s all about reigning in the id impulses I guess. Some of us are better at managing that than others.
I’ve been pretty low key this week. No great adventures to share. I would, however, like to recommend a local event to my readers in the Tampa Bay area that I’ll be attending on Saturday night at the Cuban Club called Sensory Overload. It’s jam packed with live music, visual art exhibitions and performance art. It’s just 10 bucks to get in, unless you want access to the rum festival too, in which case it’s $35. I was checking out an overview of the artists who’ll be featured and saw a lot of stuff that excited me. I doubt you’ll find a cooler place to be between 9pm and 1 am on Saturday, so why not check it out? Come say hello if you think you recognize me. I’ll be sure to pretend I’m someone else!
