What could be nicer

Only a few thousand things. Is there anything more over-hyped and overrated than sex? I think it’s mass Pavlovian conditioning, promulgated by the advertising industry. Can't live with it, can't live without it. Sigh. But I can think of hundreds of things more enjoyable, less messy, and less of a letdown, with scarcely even trying...

a Mozart piano concerto
a kiss
an acid trip
Pad Thai
a dip in the ocean at Lido Key beach
lying around all day at Lido Key beach
first night in a great metropolis
a bottle of 1980 Bordeau Blanc
The Cyclone at Coney Island
swaying in a hammock under a frangipani in bloom

feel free to jump in any time...
