Commenting on Skip the fancy words

keamoose keamoose · Sep 19, 2017 at 11:30 am

I have to say, I’m a little giddy that I managed to work “susurrated” in there, especially given that the only dialogue is “moo”.

The cow turned her languid eyes seaward and mooed, a long, languorous moo full of longing for the past and memories of the treacle-coloured dog that frolicked in the daisy pasture. Her eyelashes sparkled sadly in the morning’s cool, vapid mist as she lifted a mud-crusted cloven hoof to kick listlessly at the hand-carved milking stool, and she thought again of the dog, the dog with the silken tail and gentle woof. “Moo,” she susurrated in her torpor, and yet another near-silent “moo” escaped her grass-stained lips.

Totally distracting… “They’re like written speed bumps,” I intoned.

Intoned to the breeze opposite the pane while aimlessly thumb flipping through the bigger pictures. Because there are, thou, more than one. Endless pictures during an infinite time. On a seashell shore.

And then the milkmaids with their knotty braids and their cows milk. Dropping drips. And then the chewing cow chewed, chewed mildly like an unamused asshole. That he was. Lovely brilliant.

To conclude: “Oh, that was awesome! I loved when you were talking about that thing on the seashore and then the shells, too.”

“Flashy dialogue tags” - never heard it called that, but I like it. Reminds me of the HTML blink tag, or the marching ants tag. Annoying and distracting to the reader.

I’ll have to say that wasn’t bad. I particularly enjoyed this verse…

For I have known them all already, known them all:
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
  So how should I presume?

I suspect it’s more the reading of bad poetry that I’m not a fan of.

I just hate when people use that sing-songy “poetry-reading voice”. It gets in your head and applies itself to other poems. Sometimes it takes an effort to avoid reading everything that way.

I suspect you have heard some bad poetry. Have you read this one? My favourite. I won’t be offended though if it doesn’t do it for you. http://www.bartleby.com/198/1.html

Mona mentioned on FB, “folks not getting enough vitamins.”

So I made a sign…

“Sure, our T. rex costs twice as much, but the shipping is only $4.49!”

No such luck, they’re asking for a zip code to even tell me about shipping. The Canadian site has a smaller pony version and a triceratops, but it looks like in-store pickup is the only option. Too bad; I’d have left that T. rex up year-round, although I might have had to modify it to reflect current science on T. rex posture. :P

keamoose: maybe they’ll ship their horse skeleton to Canada.

jimi: yep, after some crippled Fat Cat with a BB gun the sister cats never go outside unless they’re on a leash.
