Glazed donuts are easy to prove to people that they exist.
Not so with things we cannot see, touch, taste, feel.
So the guy walks into the bar (me) and I get asked by by this dude “Are you positive?
My reply is “Oh I don’t do any of that testing garbage”.
Glazed look appears.
Asks if I get tested.
I explain that HIV isn’t real.
Glazed look remains and all I can think of now is a glazed donut and some coffee as I know glazed things I can eat are easier to deal with than this conversation.
I try to explain that if HIV were real it would be carried by mosquitoes, dirty shared needles…..
Doesn’t get it one bit.
Now my mind wanders into thinking of Terry Glaze who was a heavy metal musician and being at work hearing “Debbie’s Got A Chainsaw” while I make donuts.
Things that are manufactured are often very obvious that their existence is real.
The manufacturing process of believing that HIV cannot be transmitted by flying syringes is one that instead of presenting a finished product, ends up presenting something more like a GOOEY/STICKY mess.
