universality, per existential psychotherapist guru irvin yalom, is the process by which validation and subsequently healing occurs, through the mutual sharing of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. or in less fussy terms, those "phew moments" of; "oh my god, you mean i'm not the only one who thinks/does/says this?!"
unfortunately, there are still many of those "crickets chirping in silence moments" where no one else appears to be sharing in (my) experience. most recently i discovered that no one else (at the lunch table), sleeps in their watch. i believe that this is highly impractical, and the act of wearing one's timepiece through the night, can save precious "one less thing to have to do in the morning" minutes.
i have also, yet to run into anyone else that has a smelly belly button. more specifically, anyone else who has white funk to pick out of their belly button that smells funky. many agree that twirling a finger around in their nub can trigger the pee reflex, however they note that sniffing their finger after a quick "twirl" does not induce any "P.U.'s".
those people are sooo missing out.
