The Nose

by Louis E. Bourgeois

WE were standing around listening to the noseless man. He really wasn't good at speaking, but sometimes what he said was of interest. He said he liked missing a nose. He explained that before his nose was chopped off in a propeller accident, he hated life so thoroughly that anything bad that happened to his body he saw as a kind of revenge against himself for letting himself get as old as forty years of age, which he emphasized as being totally unacceptable. Most of us understood what he was saying, and at least a few of us agreed with his sentiments, but it was agreed by all that we wouldn't want to lose a nose to gain such knowledge.
