Here's a story that doesn't fit.
One of my art teachers at Tyler told me this story. Two men (and remembering the dialect, they may have been Amos and Andy back in the un-pc days) were talking about animals that were scary:
"I think the skeeriest critter in the world is a tager", says one of them. "It got these big teef and dem looong sharp claws that can tear you up in a second."
The men thought about that and shivered in their boots.
Then the other guy says," No no, the skeeriest one is a Lion! It got even bigger teef and big big feet with long long claws that can scramble you up and eat you up in a half second."
Well, that was even scarier to think about.
After a minute or so, the first man's eyes got very big and he sat up straight and said, "Nope. The skeeriest beast in the world is the Waffenflock."
"What's a Waffenflock?" says the other man.
"Well, it's a real big long thing and on one end it got a big nasty head and a big wide mouf wif lots and lots of sharp teef and it stinks when it breaves on you, AND on the OTHER end it has aNOTHER bigger head with an even bigger mouf with even more big long teef and horrible stinky bref and it likes to eat people up more than anything else."
They sat shuddering and sweating just thinking how awful that would be.
Then the second man said, "Well, how do it shit?"
"Oh yeah, oh yeah," says the first man, biting his nails and bugging his eyes,
"Oh yeah...DAT's what make it so skeery."
There is the odd time when the missing piece of someone else's puzzle turns up in your box of pieces. So here is a place to put those times when the best description of the emotion is "non-plussed." Or "told you so!!", Or "hmmm."" "
AMAZEMENT AND AWE
