Won't Uncle Norman Be Surprised!

The diploma looked real.
Mister Eddie's Father pondered his quiet shy housekeeper.

"Father, guide my sword."
But Inigo's father was dead, while Count Rugen guided his own sword.
And so the princess died.

I have nightmares when I'm chased by wolves. It's unfortunate, since that's an awful time for a person to fall asleep...

Isn't the properly incorrect phrase "I have nightmares where I'm chased by wolves"? Or is that just when Canadians roll?

To "clock with a haymaker" is a seriously mixed metaphor. Does the clockface have a baleful expression?
Why are all waitresses Roz? Why not Zor? Or Acile?

I've driven by here often.
I've seen the junk, the "Free" sign.
There was an old green bicycle.
Looking @ it terrified me.
