you know that part in “The Princess Bride” where Inigo is chasing the
Duke or whatever-his-name-is and he shouts, “fezzik! he’s getting
away from me!” i had that line dart through my head as i looked
up at the clock and saw that it was 3:00pm!! i thought “my day! it’s getting away from me!” and you must read that with the accent of course, or the effect is completely lost. ::wink::
and then i remembered that the day was never mine to begin with.
