Candy Message Hearts

Post by Eternum 1 » Wed Feb 15, 2006 10:38 pm

A sweet heart confection was my offered fealty,
a childish affection offered up on bended knee.

Their words evoke feelings, a child cannot express
scripted hidden meanings, as to what they might suggest

I picked a pink heart seething with emotional intent,
with a nervous sort of bleating, of what it might have meant.

Her reply was a bullet, her aim was sharp and true
like a prisoner in a docket, I didn't have a clue.

Certain that all happiness kept in lifes reserves,
were lost in the emptiness of her scornful words

With all the wisdom that a ten year old's imbued,
she replied with derision, "I'd never marry you".

My token of engagment was my hope to take a wife,
but fourth grade estrangement was to be my lot in life.

I look upon the candy and recall the angst, the pain
for the gigggling Mandy and the love I felt in vain.

So, began the evolution, to the creature that you know
My wretched devolution from childish Romeo.

:mrgreen:

thanks to Ninian for reminding me of those affectionate confections

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.

Yeah the Penelope tatoo was actually a worse idea. I think nothing proclaims undying love like letting her keep the house.

:shock:

The first known use of the term -galoot- referring to a big, stupid, awkward man -- goes back to 1866. The Dutch term gelubt, which means eunuch, might be the progenitor. It's possible the term had its origin in the US navy, such as it was in 1866. Many navy ships carried a compliment of soldiers. However the soldiers, not being able seamen, contributed little to a ship's operation. They got to sit around, waiting to repel Spaniards or Huguenots or whatever.

This obvious lack of effort earned them the snarling disrespect of the actual sailors, who would refer to them as "galoots" behind their back. This dovetails nicely with the Dutch eunuch origin as soldiers aboard ship do seem very eunuch like.




(definition) by Webster's dictionary:
Ga*loot" (?), n.

A noisy, swaggering, or worthless fellow; a rowdy.

[Slang, U. S.]

I think you're all a bunch of galoots especially the Canadian contingent.
A'swaggering all around in those scarlet red suits with the funny pants.
Are thouse uniforms for camouflage in the snowy Yukon territories? Who the hell came up with the idea of dressing a bunch of glorified forest rangers up in a red suit. Geesh.

That's the first comment I've heard today that made any sense. From a Canadian I mean. :mrgreen:

There's a guy in town selling t-shirts. He prints "I went hunting with Dick Cheney" on them and then shoots them with buckshot. He's getting 20 bucks a shirt :mrgreen:
