I went to a thread in my forum because of the title. “I hate similes.” My first reaction was I don’t get it! How can you hate these little guys?
I clicked on the link and saw that, once again, I didn’t take the time to read correctly. SIMILES, Bug – not SMILEYS. I read how one writer hated reading things like “her hair blew in the wind like waves gently rolling in on a warm summer night while her eyes twinkled like the brightest stars above” or whatever it was…. this person wasn’t happy & a few others chimed in about their thoughts. Writing…writing… blah blah blah… it’s been known to happen at the writing forum. Nice read, Bob, but I give it a 5. I went there to at someone picking on my dudes. I’m not really a simile fan either. Zebra & I had a great talk about it on a walk the other day. We tend to say things like, “That was as bright as… you know… one of those really bright things.” We’re all about the cheap , aren’t we? Now, back to the subject at hand.
Hello. My name is Bug & I have been sober from smileys for…. okay… I haven’t been. I love the little guys.
I have to a little bit on how my infatuation with this started. I’m kind of . My mind makes me so sometimes. Actually, I do remember the 1st cool rep I got (from the Battery) and clicked it to find it’s source and found the smiley site. I fell in love with this little guy and he was a part of my signature there for a long time & attracted a lot of attention. I thanked Battery but got my usual response: The moon is like holding the Ace. It wins. More is not better in smiley wars. does not mean “full @ss house” you win.
I know what you’re thinking. She’s You’re right. But wait, there’s more.
is always good for a time waster. And never under any circumstances, should this smiley be used.
One of my favorite ‘get my butt in gear’ sayings. Do or do not. There is no try. Love this little guy but this one has more action.
Where’s it fun to stay? At the of course! Lois? Again? Srsy? for Superman! have a . Not tonight? You don’t want to ? I’ll take this guy then.
I know you wanna me. I’ll stop now. Just gimme a first. And I’ll leave you with this .
