On The EDGE Of Insanity

You remember my/our Edge right? The brand new copper colored car that only has 1800 miles on it and is less than 4 months old? The one that makes us feel young, cool, and delayed the inevitable purchase of a mini-van? Well some jerk backed into it Saturday while Lucy was working at the bank. Oh it gets better, said jerk neglected to tell anyone and took off. Now I can’t prove who did it, but I do know that I’m in love with the color of my brand new car and very seldom do people just pop into a bank, do their business, and exit never to return again. Thus I now have my own personal Moby Dick. By judging where the Edge was hit and the paint that was left on the bumper. My Moby Dick is a White Pickup Truck with a very bright shade of Orange on its front or rear right bumper.

Like the book says “All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the lees of things; all truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab(Charlie Blockhead), were visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick(The White Pickup). He piled upon the whale’s white hump(White Truck’s Orange Scarred Bumper) the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it”
