It’s your decision, but I wouldn’t do it.
I say it all the time, Don’t touch stuff.
And when I say it I really mean it.
And I really mean it now, too. You can
touch stuff if you want, but I wouldn’t.
It’s not that the stuff will hurt you
(at least, not a lot) but that
the stuff will leave a bad mineral taste
in your sleeping schedule. You might
have occasional insomnia or perhaps
over-sleep, waking up after
everyone else has eaten lunch. It’s
the stuff that makes people like this,
though most don’t realize it.
Even as I say this, there’s probably
someone thinking, I don’t
think touching stuff is that bad.
And you’re free to think that,
but a reckoning is coming and it
involves the touching of stuff.
You might pretend that the troubles
in your life are of a different variety,
but they are all the same variety,
a certain variety of touching stuff
and thinking that doing so is just fine.
It’s a cultural blind spot.
