I wrote this line to Colorado Susan yesterday evening after another exhausting working weekday—partly to admit I was shutting down for the night with the full intention to couch potato it in front of mindless television programming before crawling off to bed.
And then I thought, hey, that’s a pretty poetic line, precipitating the following exchange:
“I just can think another thought tonight.” Am I alliteratively iambic pentametric OR WHAT?! This goes on the blog tomorrow…
A postscript followed:
Should that be “alliteratively iambic pentametrical”? What’s correct oh wondrous grammar maven?
And I got this fitting reply:
I think it is the second one, but I am so tired tonight too.
The matter was never settled, of course, but I woke this morning ready to move metrical mountains. (After two muse-infused cups of coffee, of course.)
p.s. Poor Charlie…
