As a smart ass myself, I
find other smart asses incredibly irritating. It's the size of the
ego, I guess. Then I get what I think is an A grade for The
Artist's birthday present. And as other smart asses know, high grades
let loose on ego are sure sign of imminent fall, because we smart asses
are not driven beings, we are more like mushrooms, mostly underground
with an occasional bloom. Most of which are poisonous.
And once on a roll, a smart
ass soon gathers a pontificate momentum. We begin to think the content
of our sneezes profound. The ground that we walk hallowed. It's
a wonderful feeling and because it is transient, I'll say "Giving is more
fun than taking." Which has to be absolute nonsense of course,
otherwise it would be a political slogan.
