Blogger wants me to change to Blogger beta. Is it any good, or no different at all? Enquiring minds want to know.
I was listening to the news bulletin the other night and it showed a kid on a stretcher being wheeled into an ambulance. As you often see on your average news bulletin. Anyway, I started listening with one ear, but I was immediately out of my depth because he was, “bitten by a snake in his narnargoo …” and I just could not get my head around it. It was all cleared up for me in the next word, making the whole phrase, “bitten by a snake at his Nar Nar Goon school,” which is slightly more comprehensible (Nar Nar Goon is a small town, for those still shaking your head) (honest it is, see?) but damn, I was off-balance the whole sentence and it was a really odd sensation. I couldn’t grasp the meaning of the words – I could hear them, but they were sliding by me and I had no comprehension. It disturbed me.
Oh yeah, and some poor kid got bit by a snake. That too.
