Hello everyone, Have you ever had one of those nights where no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn't get to sleep? You toss and turn, pull the covers on and off, fluff you pillows, count sheep, and just wish you would drift off, but it never happens. Yup, that's me tonight and actually the inspiration for this nifty blog, (yes i am aware no one uses that word anymore XD But, i love it none the less.) Which is why this blog is named "The Life of an Insomniac", because really who would have this much time to write a blog if they had a day life?
Anyways today was a good day I guess, my best friend and I discovered something we thought was absolutely amazing, a part of the English language that i think many people don't pay attention too, or really never discover. it is so amazing that it honestly kept us amused for at least an hour. This incredible power, is the magical intensity of dramatic pauses. We noticed, that with any sentence, (or pretty much any sentence) by placing a pause before the last thought it completely changes a word. Example take this normal sentence: "Did you have fun outside today" an innocent sentence, but when a pause is added, "Did you have...fun...outside today" the sentence changes into an innuendo. mmhmmm, yes i know I probably really seem as though i need to crawl out from under my giant rock and do something worth while, but hey, what's life if you didn't discover something new?
