All these mermaid posts are fantastic and all, but you know what other half human creature I’d like to see?
Chubby pony centaurs.
Big buff Clydesdale centaurs.
Graceful deer bodied centaurs.
African centaurs with zebra or antelope bodies.
Native American centaurs with Appaloosa and pinto horse bodies.
I did the thing.
Gonna do a full-size upload later
In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.
I always wondered though, if the men had pretty lacey fans as well, otherwise how does the communication happen? If the lady is using a fan instead of speaking, surely to say outloud ‘we’ll talk later’ or ‘meet you at seven in the courtyard for some rumpy pumpy’ would defeat the purpose of the silent language in the first place? I’m now picturing men dressed up doin a ‘come hither’ motion with a fan or using a fan in each hand like those old flag signals people used to use… That would be pretty good actually.
No greater agony #storytelling #quotes #DrMayaAngelou
There is. The greater agony is writing that whole story using a ballpoint pen. Especially when it looks full but then inexplicably runs out in the middle of writing a word… Ugh!
