Well, this is on our living room floor. What is it?
1. Is it a monolith (‘mono’ meaning ‘one‘, ‘lith’ meaning ‘lith’) left here by mysterious strangers from outer-space?
2. Is it an obelisk (‘obe’ meaning ‘oboe’, ‘lisk’ meaning ‘pointed nail’) left by Australopithecines (a pop band from Australia) in the dead of night?
Persistent Reader: Ought not an obelisk or monolith be upright, standing tall?
The Purging Oboe: Well, that didn’t take long to interrupt my post. Most people want their obelisks and monoliths to stand tall and appear overwhelming because modern media has conditioned them to think that way. Films show them that way. The news, too.
Persistent Reader: But if you leave it that way it just looks like a wall.
TPO: A wall is a fat monolith.
Persistent Reader: Of course. Carry on.
3. Is it a headboard for our Sleep Comfort bed in the master’s bedroom?
The answer is #3.
What might it look like? I don’t have a picture of ours but might it look like this?
It is possible. Susan and I will work on this together never minding we don’t mesh well as a construction team. Our project is likely to turn out like this.
Wish us luck. Good luck. Great luck. Enormous luck.
The priests blew the trumpets.
When the people heard the blast of the trumpets, they gave a thunderclap shout. The wall fell at once. The people rushed straight into the city and took it.
