Australia is such a strange and wonderful place. When I got here for the Sex and Consciousness Conference I realized my 69 books were on the other side of the continent and the distributor told me ‘due to the rain, it’ll take 4-5 days for your books to get to Byron Bay”.
Two days after the conference, with people clamoring for a copy, I was told ‘they were delivered 2 days ago and were signed by M.S.” Turns out my friend Brian’s Quality Solar Plumbing business only has 3 employees, none of whom have these initials. After an entire day of being told “There’s nothing we can do- your books have been delivered, thankfully Brian started to call around to find my lost sex books. The freight company handed them over to another freight company because Mullumbimby is such a small town. Brian and I went to all the nearby businesses asking anyone if had found our boxes. Brian kept saying, ‘don’t worry mate, they ARE someplace. As we are pondering their fate, a black and yellow snake crawls out of his car. “True,” I say, ‘the question is WHERE?’.
