(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: The Hyphen in Anal-RetentiveI confess that yesterday when cleaning the house, I mopped all the floors twice, as if that would make it last longer somehow. I confess that my cleaning extended even to polishing my shoes.
I confess that the washing machine in our building has not been working for a while now, and my laundry issues are reaching a crisis level. I confess that I've been wearing my "laundry day" jeans for over a week straight. I confess that this laundry situation contributes to what a noted Polish thinker has called "the funk of man" in my apartment.
I confess that I've been trying to think of Wilco lyrics to correspond to famous thinkers. So far I've got two:
- Jacques Derrida: "I've got reservations about so many things, but not about you."
- John Calvin: "No love's as random as God's love."
I confess that I have been posting these too early and that this behavior will stop or I will be facing serious consequences.
