At dusk today, my cohorts and I will leave for Burning Man. For the next week, I shall have no access to email, SMS, phone, crackberry, google, blogger, wikipedia, youtube, urbandictionary, facebook, or thesuperficial.com.
Which one will I miss the most? Will it be you guys, my Gentle Readers? Will I yearn for contact with my family and loved ones? Or will my most heartfelt pining go toward the important updates regarding Paris and Britney?
On Wednesday, we assembled costumes at David's house in San Francisco. Discussing shower arrangements:
Melinda: "My friend said some people at Burning Man go the whole week without showering."
Dan: "Last year, I showered every day, and I plan to do the same this year. People who go a week without showering stink."
Melinda: "Not necessarily."
Me: "Last century in China, people only went to public bathhouses every few days. The Romans did that too."
Dan: "They stank."
Melinda: "Some people have less body odor than others."
Dan: [extremely skeptical look] "I don't buy that."
Me: "Okay, then tell me if you agree with the following statement. 'Some people have more body odor than others.' Because if you do, you must also agree with the other one."
A temporary adieu, Gentle Readers, for this next week. Take care...
