My kids may never know what a darkroom was.
Once upon a time, I was dating loserboy. And holography was a new thing. Long story short, we got into an argument over the advisability of filling the room we were standing in with carbon dioxide. What a tool.Posted By Mel DuPont On 02.01.2011 @ 12:32 pm
Bowlful of jelly. Who orders that? Do they just eat it with a spoon? Do they order a dozen English muffins?
A bowlful of jelly seems like a lot of jelly. Maybe (probably) too much. Unless it’s Thanksgiving and that’s all you have to eat besides crackers.
Saltines with strawberry jelly are pretty good.Posted By Mel DuPont On 01.31.2011 @ 12:50 pm
There’s a such thing as an upright willow. They’re pretty cool when they sway in the breeze.
My neighbors have upright willows. It seems to me one year, they had no trees. Two years later, they had 50′ tall upright willows.
My perception of the growth rate of these trees is probably skewed. I try not to look across the street often.Posted By Mel DuPont On 12.07.2010 @ 5:51 pm
The practical side of Mary was that she didn’t put up with any bullshit.
This prevented her from making a lot of friends.
But the ones she had were solid, reliable. Friends like that helped her sleep at night.
Still, she wondered how different her life might be, had she lower standards. Maybe those people lived happier lives. She didn’t know.Posted By Mel DuPont On 12.03.2010 @ 4:30 pm
Flakes fell on the roof, weighing it down with cold and damp. The roof sagged under the weight.
Flakes sprayed across his face. “Bitch!” Hey – you can’t get mad for losing a snowball fight that YOU started.
Ice, cold wind whipping – I think I felt my eyeballs freeze over for a split second.Posted By Mel DuPont On 11.23.2010 @ 9:05 am
