Sanity is a fickle thing, anchored in us only by way of rational thinking. But the rational mind can at times be horribly irrational, and when irrationality is present, rationality is absent, and in the absence of rationality there can only be irrationality, rationally speaking. It’s a dangerous thing when irrationality takes ahold of rationality and tries to rationalize its way into the rational mind. See, with rationality in mind, sanity is never far away, but holding onto that rational thinking is imperative to keeping irrationality at bay; it’s far too easy to simply lose hold of one’s sanity, like that elusive piece of slippery soap in the communal shower.
Remember this, my friends, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s story, in which, I lose hold of my sanity and will eventually have to bend over.
