I was talking to a fellow bartender the other day, a woman, who said she isn’t interested in male comedians because four out of five of them base their jokes on penises.
Then I looked at this story I just wrote and there’s a dream where the guy sees flies on his penis. And I’m always talking about sucking my own dick.
I guess I’m obsessed with my penis. I don’t mind, I’m just mad I didn’t notice until now.
Then yesterday I read this interview with Mary Karr, a memoirist who I need to check out. In it there was this bit:
MK: You can ask me about my relationship with David Wallace all you like; I’m not going to talk about his penis.
NYT: That’s one of the least interesting things about any man, really.
MK: If only they knew that.
Ha! Shit I had no idea. Well I guess I’ll stop bringing up my penis all the time.
And I guess I’ll stop watching porn all the time based on this bit from Mary Karr in the same interview:
I’ve also never Googled myself. It wouldn’t occur to me to do so. It’s the same reason I don’t watch pornography. It’s not that I occupy some moral high ground. I just think: Down that road lies madness.
I never thought about it, though probably obvious to enlightened persons, but porn is probably damaging to the psyche. I was just so happy to watch porn after throwing off the mantle of Christian guilt.
I guess I’ll think cut that shit out!
But I ain’t gonna stop drinkin’, no matter what Mary Karr says about it.
