296 THE ADVOCATE
VOL. 79 PART 2 MARCH 2021
in a modern city, you can at least fantasize a Daniel Boone sort of existence
in which all you have to outthink is a bear. And the vision of yourself, safe
within your concrete fortress while your supervisor/foreman/boss gets
eaten by the bear, must have its attractions.
But your suggestions are likely to be better than mine. I have always had
profound difficulty trying to understand Americans in groups. And why
these things fascinate me is really because I find them so WEIRD!
P.S. In case you wondered, the “Do-it-Yourself Gunpowder Cookbook”
doesn’t sug gest you eat gunpowder–you just take it out of the cartridge,
mix it with sand, and burn it as a fuel. Will this be the basis of
a delightful new cuisine?
