The other day I had a massage, my last one with this practitioner because she’s moving out of state. On the landing by her door was a small stack of cinder blocks. I asked if she’d found a buyer and they were waiting to be picked up.
No buyers, she replied. “I’d give them away at this point, just to get rid of them.”
Guess who now has eight cinder blocks, even though she has no particular plan for them? Not right away, that is. But I figured you can never be too rich, too thin or have too many cinder blocks.
Part of me wondered whether this were a hoarder’s rationale. It could be.
