The Sock Monkey Abides

This Tumblr piece reminds me of what I'd called the Voice of the Sock Monkey Voice a few years ago. (Oh! way back in 2010, I see!)

"while you were having premarital sex i was dehydrating tangerines"
This voice can get old, fast, but I notice that when I spend a lot of time on tumblr, my brain loosens up.  

relax that metaphor

grammar don't real

DFW is everywhere about trying to speak and live without irony. A big AA influence.
