Exceptions

July 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

Unfortunately English spawned thousands of exceptions. They are the nastiest beasts. They eat anything to survive and will survive anywhere and always appear when you are most unprepared. They are completely unpredictable in their behavior and appearance – except that they never look pleasant and have an unsympathetic blank face. They thrive on chaos, irregularity and haphazardness. They are impossible to kill and an annoyance to all. If you attempt to categorize an exception it will lash out at you. The only way to calm an exception is to repeatedly tell them how unique and troublesome they are.

1. Something excepted; an instance or case not conforming to the general rule.
