Semi-deflated and drumming with concern, slippery when wet; always cornered, cowering from preconceived needles.

Stalactites still lack tights and make Superman blush. Suspended, drooling–more powerful than a locomotive. Air France lost seventeen of its planes last evening. They’ll show up eventually, they always do. Setbacks? You lose a couple dollars, you spring back with a chip on your shoulder. Go get the dip, dearie.
