See, I told you I'd post more - two posts already and its not even 10.00.
I just read on another website this sentence - "...shit-your-pants excitement..."
It doesn't matter what it was associated with, but when I read that, I got an instant picture that now every time I see it in my mind, I start giggling. I'll try and share it in a way that makes it clear.
I see a small boy - about 4 or 5 years old. He's just seen something... I don't know what, some new toy, or something happening near him, or something. His eyes are wide open, his mouth is fixed in a teeth clenching grin, slightly manic, slightly unsure, and he's literally vibrating with excitement and there is a faint whiff of a filled nappy (diaper for our American cousins).
It doesn't work does it? You can't see my mind-picture can you? But when I see it, I just start in like a little school girl....teeheeheehee... Peace.
