The Writing on the Bumper

I was driving along wondering at the way different people take different aspects of life seriously. Pleasure, art, love, knowledge, duty —— each has its factions of people who live by it or laugh at it. What would the best life take seriously? To what would the wise man pay attention so as to live all the way up?

Within five minutes I saw this painted in big capital letters on the back of a grimy, soot-belching gravel truck:


And this stamped on the license plate frame of a bright red new sedan:

"Life Is Freaky."

I wondered, what if the two vehicles crashed?
