What would YOUR Hyde-part do?--Al

-takes a deep breath-

Well, indulging into my deepest fantasies, I could see my Hyde seducing older men, getting high and drunk and pretend to fly. How could Hyde be such a horrible thing if all it did was make you thoroughly pleased?

Eat, probably. Very rich food. A lot of it.

Oh, well. Incidentally, if you like reading annotations and commentary on books you like, try to find Vladimir Nabokov's writings on Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, which he thought was a very good and profound book. There was a book out a few years ago called Nabokov on Literature, with some of his writings (or lectures, I can't remember) on various books, and one of them was that one. I gather he took a certain amount of flack for taking it that seriously, but he thought it had a lot to say.

In my body and psyche simultaneously, they are very hard to distinguish. Is my Jeykll a jackal ? Or was it Hyde who lied ?

I blame all the destructive, snide, crotchety, greedy actions on Hyde, who better to take the blame ? He will, behind my back stick out a foot and trip someone and alas, poor me, I bear the beatings. He is sneaky and I think, hides in my subconscious until he can dash out and cause me trouble.

The only good thing I can say about my "Hyde," is that he keeps me on my toes . . . . . . occasionally they get tired though . . . . and out pops the debbil Hyde.
