Snap, Crackle, Pop

Related imageEver share a meal with a person whose jaw cracks with each and every bite, every chew?

Crack, Snap, Crack, Snap, Pop, Crack, Pop, Snap…

It’s maddening. A faucet dripping in night’s deepest pit. Again, again, again…

Can’t the popper, the chewer hear that incessant noise?  That damnable, hellish crack?  My God!!!! It grows louder, Louder, LOUDER.

“True! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.”
