anecdote # 94 -before uncle's etymologizing

pondered if a "cotton-pickin'" minute
was fast or slow. I never asked

if just-a-fucking minute
was a slow or quick fuck.

adjectives of greeks, jews, welsh,
gypsies, indians, amiable shrugs

with "just a word". no.

I mistook ubiquitous for innocuous.

terse and poignant...

like this one a lot... the links add a dimension I don't think you'd get if it was printed in a book... but then maybe that's the point here...

yes, exactly, I want to use the advantages of the medium.
