An Open Letter to the Person with an Upset Stomach at the Salvador Dali Exhibit
0
Dear Person,

There's no doubting your stomach is upset as I walk toward "Muchacha de espaldas". I'm sorry it's upset, it smells painful, but did you have to eat first? Did your Madrid guidebook suggest that you sample the patatas bravas on the way to the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia? If it said to plug your ass on the way up the elevator, would you do it? If so, have you read the 2005 edition?

Person with an Upset Stomach at the Salvador Dali Exhibit, if you have the foresight to carry a guidebook, surely you have the decency to expel the rest of your gas in the hallway. It is a modern art museum, but Dali's work is surreal enough to satisfy all of my senses. Thanks anyway.

Regards,
Tevan Alexander

hey bean,

I don't know what's up with my voicemail. it tells me I have two new messages, and when it plays them there's silence, and then it asks me if I want to hear the previous message, current message, or next message.

to make a boring story short, I'll have to play around with my voicemail when I have easier access to a phone to figure out how to scapegoat the phone company. thank you for the message. I'll assume it was lascivious.

american tourists may be the only ones with gastrointestinal issues, marking their territory at modern art museums worldwide.
