Or all three!

Good times!

Lot's of good twabbles don't get commented on, and some twabbles get praised that just leave you shaking your head. Thems the breaks in human endeavors.

But everybody and his dog does a cut-short twabble. there must be half a dozen of them on this forum -- and I've seen as many more elsewhere.

The best one is here, in my professional opinion. :wink:

Yeah. I didn't mean that as a whiny "woe-is-me" type of thing. Sort of curious what people think of abrupt endings in these. It almost feels like a way of cheating the system. At the same time, I'm sure there are scenarios which feel perfectly right for it.

Dr. Hongo schemed to rewrite the past, to rule the future. Alas, unionized history "teachers" foiled him unwittingly.

Bob saw Sue again at the party. He still loved her like a sister. That is: every time she talked, he wanted to strangle her.

It's not the crash landing, violent natives, or even the slow suffocation of the alien atmosphere I mind. It's just you.

Me? Of course I remember. I was eating lunch - fresh tuna - when I got the news that the President had been unassassinated.

For some reason, the first person I thought of when I read this was William McKinley.

"Former President," a reporter called, "What should replace the Gold Standard you implemented in 1900?"

Each of us is special. In the ocean each drop of water counts. Likewise, we matter too - About as much as a drop in the ocean.

ASID, I bet you were a real challenge to your elementary school psychologist.
Such an urgent case of low self esteem!
He probably didn't consider that if that single drop is the one on the very bottom, you've got enough psi to crush the school.

Not if you open the doors and windows before you submerge it.

Anyway, I don't know what sissified, namby-pamby school you went to, but at MY elementary school, we had: a principal, a football coach, and a "board of education" (with nubs). Not sure which was the "psychologist".
