a virile man...

the scissors just appeared to be lifting an eyebrow at me. it was funny. scissors with eyebrow. singular. there's only one. brow, i mean. that little squirrely tail from the round. a stirrup. an extra grip for the ring finger. but to me it just looks like a be-monocled guy raising brow.

and i also keep thinking about the thing the sister told me last night. the thing about advertising jingles and slogans being translated. the translations don't go so smoothly. the best one went english-spanish-english.

the original: it takes a strong man to make a tender chicken.

the re-anglicized version: it takes a virile man to make a chicken affectionate.

indeed.
