Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.
-- Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea (1938) "Vendredi"

Three o'clock at night or in the day?
And why?
I think I'm loosing my capacity to hold these little human thoughts and beliefs.

Apropos Sartre, I realized that much of the comedy I like is satire. And that I could write it if I wanted. In fact when viewed as satire, ideas for stories seem to present themselves easier.
But I dunno. Most satire also seems to have at least an undertone of bitingness or bitterness that I also seem to be loosing grasp of. Hmm.

Three o'clock both am AND pm is always too early or late for me!

Good one.

I heartily agree.

Still, about satire, you CAN do it light-heartedly. I think I manage that decently well when I try.
And then, of course, I blog it! :-)
