So, it all started in Chatham, Massachussetts, eh?

Cinderella used her half from the divorce to open a laundrette. She found jobs for both her sisters, too. Oh the ironing!

Speaking of marriage...

No matter which states I move to, I can't seem to find a minister who will marry me and my heifer. Animal husbandry indeed!

Has the verb 'husband' (to cultivate, to till) lost its connection to the noun? That can't be a good thing. It's all about good stewardship of your plantation, er, I mean, cabbage patch.

She kept saying she wished I were more spontaneous, yet when I burst into flames she wouldn't stop screaming. Anywho...

Correspondence between the GI's opening salvos in his professional and social role proved context is not everything.
This glib twabble notes my first participation, and nods to the proliferations of double meanings that underpin so much of this idiom.

My plants, fingers, and finally my promise to you.
Forgive me Seleina,
in this strange color,
things become so brittle.

And this is the composed twabble that I came to inscribe. Subject it to your judgements, and if I like them not I shall re-register, and use a pseudonym instead.
When they said repent, repent.
I wonder what they meant .

Their love began at the beach. She was smitten despite his acne. He returned the feelings despite her missing tentacle.

Comments? Without reading 133 other pages, I'm betting this isn't original: loving-the-octopus must have been a topic around here before. And if not (slaps table), WHY NOT?!

Squid love? Tentacles? Let me get the files. He slipped pulling down the heavy sheaf of papers and died with a wet squish.
