Chirr-chirr-chirr-chirr (Sound of a cricket)

I know…sometimes I can be really sarcastic!

    Raul,

    Oh, this is the challenge about being first. I get lots of things, like dark humor, stupid humor, slapstick, but I don’t seem to get sarcasm:~( Must have missed that gene. I liked the cricket sounds, however.

    On the other hand, you still made me laugh…I’m just not sure what I laughed at.

    The picture is dynamite…how’s that for a descriptive word? Is this one of yours? It almost looks surreal.

    Hi Sara,

    Sarcasm is very common in my country. It is used in everyday language as a way to express thoughts and opinions without saying what it is being thought. Usually is about saying the opposite of what want to be said; for example, referring to someone that nobody likes: “That nice gentleman” Or when someone is in a bad mood and barking to everyone around: “You are such a friendly guy!” Or making a comment to a coworker while seating back in a chair with the feet resting over the desk: “I can’t keep working this hard man!”

    In this case I was just laughing at the thought of claiming independence from society in general and people in particular. In reality we are all “connected” in so many different ways that it is simply impossible to claim to be really an independent being. I’m not saying it is good or bad, I’m just saying that is the way it is, and believing being independent is only lying to oneself. If we expect a speech of declaration of independence, there will be no sounds to hear, and the cricket’s sound would be the way to reflect that lack of words to be heard.

    So you see, at the end I publish the comment as a post and the post as a comment.

    Just trying something different to see what happens :)

    Raul,

    Thanks for clarifying the sarcasm. I get it now:~)

    I liked what you said about us being connected. Perhaps, if we recognized this in a global way, we’d have fewer wars. In the States, we pride ourselves on being independent, but we are being proven wrong as the world shrinks. I think you are very right about the futility of “independence.”

    I also liked your comment-post. I appreciate because it made enjoy your real post all over again:~)
