Fafmissen, I give you your new I Miss Fafblog Commenter of the Week, Spot!
Like two jazz masters, Ken and the puppethead threw down Noir-Style in the shadowy netherworld of the Pardon Me post and comment thread:
She had gams like the pillars of Hercules, and she was standing in front of my desk, bawling like a kid who dropped an all day sucker in the gutter.
Only the sucker was me, and the gutter was my office. I'm Libby. Scooter Libby, hard boiled PI.
I looked up. Christ, even her tear filled eyes looked like they were used to the feel of cheap lingerie. I lit a cigarette.
She sobbed some words at me, but my mind was somewhere else. I brought it back - this might be important. She started again. I lit another cigarette.
"It's... it's..... the Asp.... Aspens. They're not... turning.... not turning!"
I rolled my eyes. Stupid dame. I lit another cigarette, and put out the first one, but left the second burning in the ashtray while I smoked the third. Then I got mad. Then I got mean. I lit another cigarette.
"Can the sobs and listen sister! They turn in clusters, see? Clusters, because their roots connect them. Yes, I said it! CLUSTERS!"
She gasped. I could tell I'd hit a nerve, but I wasn't through. I was going to hit some more nerves, and hit them hard, -- harder than they'd ever been hit before.
But first, I needed a smoke.
Good stuff, guys, and well played, thepuppethead!
MarkC earns unofficial first runner-up honors with:
"You shall have the body!" George screamed to Tull in Latin, as he removed his suspenders.*
*Since then, of course, the suspenders have been in the Smithsonian, where the sign reads: "Suspenders of habeas corpus (on loan from the Hague Museum of Criminal Sartorial History)."
Because who can resist the idea of a Hague Museum of Criminal Sartorial History?
Special thanks to mistah charley, ph.d. whose comment over at A Tiny Revolution really brung the traffic this week.
Lastly, to the searcher who found theirself here after typing "microwave gizzard" into the trusty search machine:
