A Year of Hugs and Shooing Flies
I've been here a year today!

How many hearts and hugs have I given out?

How many times have I said "shoo fly" and meant it?

Joining a new group is never easy and everyone here was so very welcoming.

I've found my niche and I like it.

Yeah, but the metre is a little off. The first line is trochaic and the second line is iambic; classic inversion there. But the count is off; if you're going to go catalectic, it's generally the last line which drops the beat. And catalexis is supposed to be messing with an established metre, which doesn't really work with a couplet...

Congrats on your first year;
we love to have you here.

Had to sacrifice the inversion, but at least the feet match!

Yay, mom! Big Grin

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Having you reply to anything I write is quite like getting a pin from the pope, but waaaaaay more special. Heart
