Lever A: food. Lever B: water. Lever C: cocaine.
C. C. C. C. C. C.
ADDICTION? Don't be ridiculous! We just like that lever.

Good point. Best to recruit a couple of friends to, ah, "help". :wink:

I never knew my mom. But I love stepmum. She gives the best of herself. I'm lucky to have such a good intestine to call home.

Daddy was French. He used to call me "Mon petit sausage."
I was so sexy, my soft sau, with the accent on my second syllable.

He'd been dismembered. We found his limbs scattered in, out, and shaken all about. Cause of death: ear worms, terminal.

Tina compared the stick to the directions. A plus if pregnant, a minus if not. Real simple. But what did a pentagram mean?

A century of letters to justify this plot. The editor would read these aloud and they would know why this had been chosen.

This and these refer to... too ambiguous.
As for ambiguous, I know ambi means 'both', but guous is pretty darn...ambi... enigmatic.

Hm, I was trying to be ambiguous. A century of letters could refer to 100 years of correspondence or it could refer to the 100 characters of a twabble. "Plot" could refer to a plan or the element of a story. The editor could refer to the person editing the 100 years of correspondence or to the Drabblecast editors. And so on.

Clearly it was too ambiguous; will try again at a softer self-referential twabble.

We all operate at different grade levels, lyda. "Too ambiguous for strawman" is by no means too ambiguous. Strawman is no Cleanth Brooks.

Thanks for the explanation.

When the student is ready, a teacher appears
with harsh life-lessons to prey on your fears.
And that's just the tuition.

Experience is the hardest teacher. It gives you the test first, the lesson after.

Some will not follow; they crave the chaos of before. Take the children; make them love you. Only children live forever.

The trick is to pretend you can't see them, just like everyone else. It's like faking a smile. Better be good at that, too.
