Your today's surreal
This entry is apropos of nothing other than that I finally got around to reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay which I recently completed. I can’t emphasize how much I enjoyed the fictional novel, but this entry isn’t meant to be a book review. No one wants to read my pedantic explication of this (truly fantastic) novel. This isn’t a spoiler, but I enjoyed the cameo appearance of Salvador Dali in Michael Chabon’s literary tour de force, which perfectly segues into this image I came across on the Internet today. Look at this photograph of the surrealist nonchalantly taking an anteater out for a stroll. No matter how “weird” or “bizarre” or “crazy” your day might be, ask yourself, “Have I seen anyone take their anteater for a walk today?” If your answer is no, then your day has been quite normal and mundane. And oh yeah, go pick up Amazing Adventures and thank me later.
