"You're married. That's why you feel paralyzed from the waist down."

What a delightful view of the institution of marriage.
"I AM the third-person omniscient. I know everything."
 or click here

For those who don't remember their middle school education very well, third-person omniscient is the unnamed literary voice that tells a story in "he/she" rather than "I". So basically, what STM is saying here is that he is the all-knowing narrator of the universe?

Amazingly, I had to tell ADAM what was meant by this. He never learned a lot of the formal grammar stuff that many of us did.

  3. Perhaps he's channeling a recently departed smart *ss. That's so odd...

  5. Sigh, I miss the third person narrator. Everything is now written in first person and it is annoying.

  6. Marilyn sighed, and reflected upon how much she missed the third person narrator. Everything seemed to be written in the first person these days, which she found annoying.

  7. It seems Adam's brain has a very unhelpful filing system.

  10. The second one would be great for a t-shirt and the like. :D (And perfect for writers). ;)

    (On the subject of clothing... is the sizes still the same? The t-shirts I've bought were awfully short, the spaghetti strap even more so. I really, really do hope you'll consider changing this/changing company, so we can have some proper lenght clothes). :)
