    It’s just a glitch in the system. Everything will be fine.

    My guesses: Shakespeare mixed with a little Heart of Darkness, narrated from within James Joyce’s mind when he was writing Ulysses. Close?


  3. Hi lili. The glitch in the system was about me “fall’n off ‘de path” or about my writing? *laughing* Either way…?

    Hi aspietalk. Heh. Too funny. I don’t know in terms of any sort of “writing critique.” I came up with this a long time ago and it was sitting as a Draft. I didn’t know what the hell to toss up on my blog (I still have a serious one in my head), but I didn’t have time or energy yesterday. So, this is what everyone got!

    I must admit, it was fun to write. I’m not sure if anyone else out there finds it as amusing as I do, but I’m just so completely warped to my sense of humour, anyway. Amuse myself on my own blog?
