Theatre of the absurd

"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity."
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729-1781) German Dramatist


Well, you could say that this was providence to have read the above the day hubby received the post … a tiny bit of hope wafting in the ether!

“Here, have a shuftee at this!” he said giggling to himself.

And so I proceeded to read the envelope … and read something no one in their right mind (in Jordan at least) would ever think of writing …. Well, let’s get it into its frivolous perspective; nothing quite as ‘breakfast regurgitating’ as this when it comes to 'selective' human rights and democratic principles that espouse accountability .... can you blame us for being quote "not with them" unquote?

But considering the said envelope emanated from that great temple on the mount in Jebel Abdoun, one would not be wrong in thinking that they know ‘swot’ ‘swat’ ‘dick’ or ‘harry’ about who is who and what is what in our beleaguered part of the world!

So for all of you out there who know us and where we live, here is your daily dose of laughter, for this is the envelope we received which shall be duly framed and hung on the bathroom wall:

PS ... any suggestions for the name of the said Theatre Company???
