Pro'ly true, but I tend to a speech that's rather more flowery than
absolutely necessary because those are the first words that come into my
head. I've always been that way. Back to first grade or so when I
complained to the principal that "her hands descended from the sky like
talons of fire and plowed furrows into my back" when some big female bully
beat me up. Or so the story goes. That's not actually a first-hand
memory, but I've heard it told so many times that I believe it. That
principal still recognizes me 25 years later too.
Yeah, I got beaten up a lot. It wasn't until I learned how to say "ain't"
once in awhile, and even drop in the occasional "we was" or "I knowed" that
I was finally, blissfully able to camouflage myself and slip beneath
It doesn't always work though. I forget. "We was comin' home yestidy, ah
believe 't were 'round midnight, and one o' them telly fone poles rised up
outta th' ground like an obelisk of darkest obsidian before us..."
