Disturbing conclusions regarding food




And so I ask you all, is there a rule against simply eating hummus with a spoon? If so, why? If not I may just eat entire vessels (the saller size ones) of hummus as I eat single-serving yogurt units.

By definition, getting what you want is unbearable; it is both frightening, because it makes life seem unnecessary (“let’s just stop right here!”), and disorienting, because it throws our whole economy of desire into disarray (eventually, hummus won’t be so great… but there’s nothing as good as hummus!).

What is it about this sort of explanation that requires parenthetical illustration by exclamation? I’m serious, it seems a pretty constant theme.

I understand what you’re saying, there is a certain structure to these types of ennunciations (see here). But one must understand how hard it is to talk seriously about the voices in one’s head telling you to eat stone-ground mustard–all of it–straight from the jar…with a spoon (see here). Parentheses provide a space for the voices, as it were.
