Many years ago, I bumped into a table at my friend Robbie’s house & spontaneously apologized…to the table. Just an “oh sorry table”. It turned out this was a teachable moment as Robbie then explained to me the literary term known as ‘pathetic fallacy’ which is defined by Oxford as:
‘the attribution of human feelings and responses to inanimate things or animals, especially in art and literature’
I then realized I’d lived my whole life abiding by this ‘pathetic fallacy” thing. Getting angry at individual bottles that didn’t open, complimenting comfortable chairs & so on. Anyway, I was rummaging through some old pics I took back in the 20th century & stumbled on this thing above. I instantly thought about good ole ‘pathetic fallacy’ because those 2 guys in the pic are definitely giving off some kind of weird, creepy energy & I don’t trust it.
