Journal Entry: Hamburger Restaurant

Journal entry, 3/1/14: Justice Minotaur and Mr. Cornwall dined out this evening at a hamburger restaurant called Critterz. In an attempted to save money that backfired miserably, the two men stopped on the way to the restaurant at a gas station to have a snack and wound up purchasing the only two pieces of fruit that could be found on the premises. The total bill was $2.67 (equivalent to approximately $14.50 in American dollars).

At the restaurant, the men spent the first hour and a half acquainting themselves with the menu, which included a 167-page biography of its founder, Dwight Overlord. Chapter 12, “How to Fight a Rash with Your Bare Hands and Win,” was particularly instructive. In a corner in the back, a young man was making out with a short-haired damsel who was wearing deer antlers.

Nothing about the food itself was noteworthy, but Minotaur did observe near the end that “we have been blessed with a meal with perfect timing, including the interludes between the waiter’s visits to our table and the period between ordering the food and its arrival. It is like a dance or a concert–pace, dynamics, the caesura: all must be in perfect balance, equal parts restraint and explosion. Chronos has blessed us with his presence this evening.” The two diners left a kind note to the waiter but no tip, figuring it was better on the waiter’s morale if he believed a large tip was intended but had simply been forgotten than if a small tip were actually given.

The two men decided to go home and watch the Kenneth Branaugh version of Much Ado about Nothing on the VHS player. As the movie started, Minotaur said: “Cornwall, your watching will be on the superficial level, as you struggle to acquaint yourself with character names and the most fundamental aspects of the plot. Meanwhile, I will be comprehending the universe.”

  1. It itself is possible that most times his Cornwall and Justice watch at the theatre that Cornwall has some hard time comprehending the characters all the while the Justice well comprehends the whole universe and everything that which inside of it. I would like well to live inside of his brain. Is it grand? Is it spacious? There are windows? Who can say it? It, would I the thing do? But yes. It is that which I have said unto many: but yes. Those are my famous words.

    I want to relate about the chronos. There are two signfications here. The one the time, literally, the time that marches, hours and seconds and minutes. Years. Days. Etc. The other signification of chronos is the event or happening. So there can be few minutes and many events. Or, it is the case that there can be much time and no events. How do you like to count? To you to choose, my sagamond. Don’t throw it to another who cannot trap it.
