An Apology For My Dereliction

I gotta be honest with you, I'm living stuff right now that's just flat out better than anything I could write. Not saying much, I realize, but I'm in a situation where the truth's just so damn good and mind-boggling that I spend every free moment trying to process it.

It's a good place to be, I believe, but it's also frustrating when words utterly fail me.

Tonight is typical of so many recent nights. At 3 o'clock in the morning I find myself so cross-wired and swamped with all the things I saw and heard over the course of the previous eighteen hours that my mind just shuts down and I can't shake any words loose to save my soul. The upshot: I've been sitting here for over an hour staring at a box of Triscuit Thin Crisps and mulling the mysterious words printed there beneath the brand name: "Weave Some Wonder."


Do that.

And --if you can-- explain to me what the hell those words could possibly have to do with a snack cracker.

  1. Weave some wonder, indeed. The slogan, I think, is an in-joke at the Nabisco Corporation. It's oblique laugh at the customer's expense -- at his perplexity in having bought a box of Triscuits, cut his pepper jack into size-appropriate rectangles, and opened the box only to find triangular crackers.
