REDRAINED

A church's bell-ringer passed away.

The position was advertised, and a man with no arms applied for the job. The priest gently suggested that with no arms, he couldn't do the job, but the man convinced him give him at least a try-out.

They climbed the bell tower...and he ran toward the bell, and struck it with his head. The peal resounded over the countryside, and they gave him the job.

The next day he went to ring the bell, tripped, bounced off, and fell to the ground hundreds of feet below.

A man waking below saw this and was horrified. He ran to tell the priest what had happened. "Father, do you know this man?" he asked.

"No," said the priest, "but his face rings a bell."

Twofer - 02/07/16 10:04 PM


REDRAINED

The position of bell-ringer was again vacant, and was duly advertised again.

Another man without arms came to apply. "That man who fell yesterday -- he was my twin brother. You MUST give me the same chance to do the job that you gave him!"

They led him up to the bell tower. He ran at the bell.. and he, too, tripped and fell to the ground hundreds of feet below.

The same man was again walking down below, saw it all, looked at the man, looked at the priest, and said, "Father, do you know THIS man?'

"No," said the priest again, "but he's a..."

"I'm searching life for observations, nuances, details. Because
my interest in life is not the event as such, not war as such, not Chernobyl as such, not suicide as such. What I am interested in is what happens to the human being, what happens to it in of our time. How does man behave and react. How much of the biological man is in him, how much of the man of his time, how much man of the man." Svetlana Alexievich

Happens all the time. I respond to a post only to see someone
beat me to it. Or I respond to a post on an email only to see
it was a post about ten posts too late.

Well, I'm certainly no seer. I'd have never figured that one. Dirty work, CIA. That'd make me paranoid. Closest I got was JJ Abrams. Thanks.

You did now didn't ya. Missed that one. Apologies.

But, coincidences of councidences, wasn't there a Wainwright at the BBQ tonight! Not sure what the universe is saying....something to do with meme, semiotics, reconstruction and cognates.

Carry on. No interpretation possible.
