Dream Job: Petting Zoo? :: 'mouse :: 0

I just realized that my dream job involves lots of healthy, happy wide-eyed three- to five-year-olds, and puppies.

I knew much of my personality was the result of hard work by those who had come before me, but when I went to the graveyard to pay the royalty fees, I couldn’t find a single coin slot and was forced to pay only respects, which I guess is okay except I didn’t get a receipt and have no way now of deducting it on my taxes.

Feeling relic-y :: goliard :: 0
Just as I was learning to control my nostalgic urge to pedal my tricycle backward and started pushing forward the world reversed rotation on me and now I can't keep my balance, watching kids relentlessly documenting their day to day aging like it's mandatory; cheerfully allowing the constant monitoring and censorship that they should be scared of, neglecting to ask one important wh- question- what happened here?

Irwin rushed to seek treatment.
Imagine my surprise :: goliard :: 0
When I found out my lifelong rebellion has just been an untreated disorder, like, 'your life has just been a symptom of your death'.

Smiting :: 'mouse :: 0

If you call my landline from your cellphone and then have a bad connection and then you get grumpy at me because you are not being heard and understood and getting the information you want from me, you should know that while I may be outwardly polite, I am calling down upon you all the curses and wrath of an angry Old Testament God.

When a tiny spring clip flies off into space as you are rebuilding the top-end of a small engine (replacing the cylinder head and piston on a chainsaw, for example) you should search your entire shop and flush out the bottom-end several times to be extra careful, however, you should not be surprised when aforementioned spring clip magically re-appears inside the new cylinder head (which I swear was still in a sealed bag at the time the clip disappeared and which was inspected several times before installation) so that when you start up the engine it destroys the brand new piston and cylinder head and leads you to have to order all new parts and rebuild the damn thing again.

Chainsaws 101 :: 'mouse :: 0

Chainsaw chains come labelled with green (low kick-back), yellow (high kick-back) and red (fucker will make your saw attack you like a rabid rottweiler) and you will learn to respect the warnings at no little cost in blood, assuming you survive.

the well :: boot :: 0

The fuel long gone, Emma pumped and pumped and tried her best to ignore the horrid, dry burning smell.

words are like ducks :: boot :: 4

They quack and they waddle and they run away if you don't approach slowly.

because of the joy :: boot :: 1

Only the unwell of heart decide to find out if they can write a book and then, when done, do it again, despite all the pain and the self-induced suffering.
