Random Thoughts From Sula

  • It gets late too early in the wintertime.
  • When my internet service was out, I had to look up a word in an actual dictionary (!), and it reminded me of elementary school, when we learned that L is in the center of the dictionary.  Then that flashback made me want to go out and buy one of those big first-grade pencils.
  • Tetanus would seem scarier if they still called it lockjaw.
  • I find it confusing when someone writes something is happening “as we speak,” because if they’re writing, we’re not speaking.  And I always have to wonder if it's happening right then, or back when they were writing.
  • Why do people say tuna-fish?  You never hear anybody say “I’m having a turkey-bird sandwich.”
