Death and parting hair

Now that I'm old, people want me dead! The grayer my locks get, the more hair dressers remind me dyeing is the only option.

The bear watched me in the trap struggling with the notion of cutting off my own leg with a pen knife. Either way, he'd eat.

Our flights out of town went in opposite directions, but fate and a twister managed to get us back together one last time.

Marriage is sacrifice

The photographer waved us back, back, back towards the cliff. This image would later be called "Neptune's Offerings".

LOL! But the title doesn't fit. Maybe: "Smash Photography"?

The "dyeing" twabble was not bad, either.

Oh, okay, you're suggesting a tag-team approach.

"Crap!" I squawked my disappointment in the jeweler! I still couldn't get the wedding band on my bride's webbed finger.

That's crazy talk!
Perception really *is*: "reality we solved the people's problems by requiring they wear rose tinted glasses".   *Deep inhale*

PS: It's "rose" colored to hide the blood better.

Does everyone notice how much better that is, at an existential level?

And thanks, too, eric and asid, for the subtle use of font color as subtext.

The word plight saved me one letter and I think it works much better as well.
