Wow! Nice cinquain! I'm typing a few emphatic keys tonight!

Shirley said...

OK...You win. This is great!

Bubba said...

Yea... what they said! (He mumbled, not having a clue as to what does or does not make up a good cinquain)

Not being the sharpest pencil in the box, I can only wonder if the issue of 'repositioned weight' has more to do with metaphoric weight than actual weight of the ink, although, if the treatise in question involved 800-900 pages (single-spaced, of course), I suppose the weight of the ink itself might be a factor, assuming prolonged periods of carrying it.

Damn, it's hell being an engineer...

Bob, I'm certain the first key to fail on my keyboard will be the backspace. Nice job.

Perhaps that is why I use electronic media, there in lies an escuse as to why what I produce has no weight...

Hi paisley, thanks I know it's saved me many times.

Hi Jo, thanks and let it all out!

Hey Shirley, I won when we all linked up.

Bubba I love your response as I have a propensity to lean towards the technical ;)

Hey dan mine's already gone :)

And lastly Oz, I heartily disagree good sir!
