"Dear Reader—

I'm hopeful that you will get the jokes in this book, or at least find them thought-provoking, without the benefit of any translation by myself or other critics. I would like to explain, however, that the central idea here was to portray a life of continual distraction that gets nowhere by going everywhere and starts over before beginning. Ideally you will continue to read this book without ever completely finishing it.

I would like to acknowledge a special debt to the Indo-Europeans for providing many of these words.

Respectfully yours—
Tom Grothus"
