ignorance as the spice of life

The first notable seasonal white rimes the local rooftops this morning. It melds strangely with the fog that slips in and out of the street. The tree of the hanging squirrels across the way is losing its leaves on its furthest tips. No sounds of Canada geese fill the air. It's chilly.

Last night, I had a sweet potato, among other things, for dinner. Or was it a yam? I don't know. What's the difference between a sweet potato and a yam? I don't know. I could look it up, but choose not to.

Ignorance, after all, is the spice of life.

    Willful ignorance? What’s Wrong with you? You should feel Great Shame!
