The Human Condition

Do you ever stare at the human face, and think that it’s a really strange feature?

Bony bumps protrude beneath squishy orbs that we call distinct and handsome, and fangs spread wide in a gesture we recognize as friendly.
Droopy parts are pasted on the sides and smack dab in the middle -plus dead cells sprout from the top or ears and nose like a wild jungle plant’s fronds…

What gets me, when I’m in this mood, is how the arrangement of these fleshy parts causes us humans to say how attractive an arrangement it all is (or not).

You’re all so weird.

    I do the same faces fascinate me but I am also terrible at remembering people’s names so I have got into the habit of remembering them by their animals and fictional characteristics which they resemblance, i.e. The Walrus and Gimli, just to name a few. This habit doesn’t help me remember their names though.

      I find this hilarious and relatable. I have nicknames for most people, and also have trouble with names.
