BRAINTENANCE: A Wonderfully Paradoxical Question
Dear Friends (and I take great liberties with the use of this term):
This is a wonderfully paradoxical question, usually asked by one person of another when the first person (the interrogator) has just witnessed the second person (the interrogatee) doing something very foolish: "Do you know how stupid you are?"
Just thinking about the expectations of the interrogator (assuming that the question is not rhetorical, which is, admittedly, a dubious assumption) is a mind-twister. Further, exactly what would the interrogatee's most appropriate response be, given the circumstances?
p.s. And why, you may ask, do I begin sentences using the word "And," use so many commas, and insert so many (parenthetical) sentence fragments? I have asked myself this same tri-part question, but because I am asking it of myself, I am not qualified to answer it.
Thinking is such a complicated business. Is it any wonder why so many people have given it up entirely?
