Impressionable, shiny young minds deserve the room and space to find their way and then reveal to others, triumphantly, their epiphanies as if the story and the morals are new, however tired the stories may seem to others...like me. I kind of felt like sticking finger toward the back of my throat and gagging, to tell you the truth. And I wanted to say "Oh Puleeeeze!" and
D'OH! Like chrysalis becoming butterflies, you know ... cliches and all that crap.
You mean, if I THINK, I can be creative and come up with something that can work as well??
But, just because I've been doing that very thing for YEARS....I decided it wasn't polite to step on someone's mental toes.
Didn't want to take the chance of being drummed out of AN because I can slice someone with ginsu-knife wit. S'too easy.
And if it was a troll, Ppppffffttt. Not worth the trouble, not worth wasting words on.
