the mahogany lingum is missing presumed stolen from the back garden and miro broke the sycamore white magic wand and then didn't bother telling me about it. i am beginning to suspect that sturgeon's law ("ninety percent of everything is crap") may also apply to people

the kids and i were in the park when we were very close to a lighting strike and it was the loudest thunder any of us had ever heard

we walked back in the drizzle and all got a second hit of gak from the local shop
