Mm: rather go with the knee lift- than the knee jerk reaction, unless you have splendid patellas: you don’t want to suffer from prepatellar bursitis, no.

P.S. Some acronyms are more unfortunate than others.

Good and Gnarly

Gnarly: WOTD on Wiktionary. The needlefish is just helping out. Not garish or gaudy, just garfish. Gnarly: the design to go with your attractive character.

Touché Cliché

So, there’s a pussyhat in the V&A, but no wiki yet.

Sunday Mental Gym Poem: de-monstrate, not tell

I have been reading lists of clichés;
listening to talks about random violence-or-not at chuckycheezes
spoiler: it’s usually a domestic affair
Also:
weapons of mass destruction
points-of-no-return
small-step braveries
shooting of mentally ill patients in hospital beds
snatches of gravity’s rainbow
long re-reads of tortuous tales

It made the time on the treadmill go by slightly faster
even without time crystals

Touché cliché has a bonjour tristesse ring to it, no?
wickéd
like sweat through a lulu leotard

demon straight
demon’s traits
– I am trying to think of a monster-
in 1500 words

Cheesy.
