Question of immediate import

By santeewelding ·
Moments ago, I saw a cockroach on the wall. It scurried downward, behind the monitor, too late for me to act.

Momentarily, it showed up with antennae twitching above the keyboard. I whacked it with my TR-recommended swatter. Not hard enough, or I missed. Scurried away, it did.

Absentmindedly, while reading some member dismissing us for talking about talking too much, I put the tumbler to my lips for another sip of sherry.


It had fallen in. It struggled against my upper lip.


Do we talk about talking too much?

They would made a louder popping noise when they would die very suddenly. It was a two-paper-towel job to clean them up. Yeah, yech.

I am not alone and I am not strange, when it comes to the "insectual", and more than the gravitational constant would seem to allow.

Is something to sought. Getting by without oddity is far too simple, and dare I say it - boring.
I don't mind conversing with inanimate objects, but insects are given a wide berth.

When my worn out eyes read the word "incestual"
instead of '"insectual".

Gotta get new lenses. These the VA gave me wore out fast.

You been lookin' too much?
At what, signified by your conclusion of incestual, perhaps? Perhaps the mind has found its way to the gutter.

Your mother told that you'd go blind, but she never said that mere thoughts would hurry the process.

You hit the man with too much over this. I, myself, would be tried.
