Eight :: boot

My favourite number is 8 and there’s a sentence of mine lower down that has 8 comments and it looks so nice that I couldn’t help but comment on it - although commenting on it below would have made the number of comments 9, so, instead, here I am wasting valuable Scrine-bird space with this odd little comment-come-sentence.

So many people collect things, some people have collections inflicted upon them, some people go that little bit insane about it, some are quite happy to stop before double digits, some collect the expensive and rare, some collect the quirky and cute, some just collect things because they can, but at the end of the day, it’s all just a variant of the same disease.

As another year of life came to completion, boot stood at her front gate and forlornly waved her ‘age with an 8 in it’ farewell.

I’d like to post a sentence saying how nice it is that I’m on sentence 838, but by the end of this sentence it will no longer be true.

farewelling 888 :: boot

As my vision slowly became clearer, I tried to focus on the orange shaped blur in front of me, all the while steadying myself from the heady, calming, blissful state, and eventually the shape manifested itself in the form of the most heavenly mango ever seen.

lint :: 'mouse

November just wouldn’t seem complete without a sentence about my dryer lint fetish.

“And, here on your left, you will find the 888th level of hell, which we all fondly refer to as Fixation Corner, oh-hoh-hoh.”

It hardly matters what’s inside it.
