    Oooo I like this! :D

  2. Ro Sham Bo. I am hysterical! The periods are very effective. I’ve only read the title, but I’m fully expecting some (awful) rowing (toward God? or perhaps away from Him … hope you catch my poetry reference), followed by a sham, and then Little Bo Peep sweetly going along her merry way.

  3. Paper covers all. Damn straight. On one hand, this means that no matter what happens, writing makes it all better. On the other hand, no matter how close you dance to the gates of hell, with scissors no less, the Bible still trumps it.

    We tell stones, “Stick!” And they do. Why do people want to throw them? And FYI, I also see “Wet L.” :)

  4. Paper covers all. No, you can’t throw a rock through it!
