William Lashner's PI-Writing Blog

Ready Made

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Meaning has become a public part of our lives. We hide our deep-seated sexual dysfunction or our most fervent dreams of ill-will toward others, while we advertise our meaning in the most public of places, our church, a PTA meeting, presidential campaign rallies We show it off by the vegetarian entrée we order in restaurants or by the Birkenstocks we actually wear in public or the Hummer we drive just to piss off the weenies in their Priuses. In that way, meaning is like fashion, we pull it off a rack to define our individuality. 

Except nothing is less individual than someone else’s certainty.
