Charles Gramlich of Razored Zen wrote a post on dialogue addressing the difficulties of it and the balance in a good story. I thought I would add to this by writing a few pieces of great dialogue I have heard recently. Feel free to add your own or pick a favorite. The hurt piggy is still crying wee wee wee, but less so today. Thanks for all the well wishes!
My friend Darci describing her job monitoring EKGs at the hospital: "I watch the hearts at night."
"He won't even let him touch her boobies. That's not dating if you as me." In reference to an 89 year old man who had hooked up with a 40 year old.
"A grown man tiptoeing through the tulips? That ain't right." In reference to Tiny Tim's famous song.
"You don't deserve to watch Dancing With the Stars!" my question -- Who does?
"She had three children, looks like she ate two of them." in reference to a former sweetheart.
"It's just a matter of time before a young dude sticks his thingy into another hole." in reference to Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Speed-dialing Gloria Steinem!
"I showed my boobs, but my mom didn't mind because she'd seen them before." No idea of context, check-out line at Target, source of much of my great material.
Michelle's Spell of the Day
"If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time." Marcel Proust
Detroit 187 was really fun -- lots of old-school, 70s grit!
