A sort of surreal experience

This weekend, mangofandango and I were visiting some family in upstate Vermont. At one point, we were going to be walking around outdoors, and I hadn't planned on it being as chilly as it was, so my dad loaned me a fleece pullover that he'd brought along with him.

A few minutes later, he remarked that it was kind of funny that I was wearing that particular pullover, since it used to belong to the Ob/Gyn doctor who had delivered me 25 and a half years ago. My mom had picked it up secondhand at his garage sale.

That kind of blew my mind a little.

old things just last longer, I think.

I am currently wearing a jacket that my mother wore when she was pregnant for the first time. She bought it because it's short and accommodates bulges better than other coats - and after 30+ years, it's still in good condition and warm.

Regarding your response to my poll question, I could suggest some books if you like...

Sure, that'd be great.

I'm not sure if we've had words about this, so forgive me if I'm misaiming:

My number one recommendation is Ramsey Dukes.

You might like David Bohm.

And if you take them with a grain of salt (actually, I'd suggest approaching any of this with the greatest of skepticism), you could try Gen Hex or Book of Lies.

There's a big rift between the good and bad books, between the good ones and most of the ones on a Barnes and Noble bookshelf.
