I say that bone marrow is very beautiful.

Yeah, the judge didn't buy it either.

Mixed review:
It may be very good, but it's still symptomatic of the fall of civilization.

Well then, that calls for an obligatory quote, to fix your wagon:

8 ball? The rules are simple. All you need is 4 guys and a hungry piranha. From there, the game just plays itself really...
"Overwhelmed as one would be placed in my position,
Such a heavy burden now to be the one,
Born to bear and read to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen..."

For 10 years he sang his pretty tune, melodious even in its dis-chord.
I'd hold a sheet behind me.
He would sing for hours.

You have a ball? I'm on a roll, get the ball rolling, hit the ballpark. Hit the road an hour ago and the street still smarts.

Sucks, don't it. Took me forever to realize that "Only the good die young" has very little to do with lifespan.

He was a good soul, a happy soul. He did his part well but made no big mark. So, his memory dies with me, the last who knew him.

PS: "dischord" can, of coarse, be poetic license, but "it's" is unforgivable! :shock: :wink:
It's its. The whole nit can be resolved by using "its dis-chord".

Yes, i'll let the grammatical error stand. Very nice follow-up twabble, ASID.

I was always uncomfortable when I tried to fit in. Forcing a square peg into a round hole made for painfully scrapped edges

Welcome aboard, Lauradoodle!

Unfortunately, that ficlet was too long to be a twabble, but scrape those edges by one more character and it will fit. :)

Actually, not a problem, as scrapped was typed where scraped was intended.
Second the welcome, Lauradoodle. Are you by any chance related to Polywolly?

To be honest to God, it was a fool's errand to book a judge under cover, as he had not the faintest idea what ‘punish’ meant.
