I started randomly affixing my Shakespearian magnets to suitable surfaces while walking to my counselling session last week. When I saw an item of street furniture, like a sign or a trash can, which looked in need of brightening up, I’d dip into my pocket, grab the first magnet I touched, and slap it in place.
In the process it dawned on me it might be more entertaining to put a little thought into where I place each particular obloquy. I’ve already decided where I should place many of the ones still in my possession.
- “Out of my sight…” will go near the local neighborhood optometrist’s store.
- “Out, you green-sickness carrion!” is destined for the sign outside my doctor’s surgery.
- ”...I’d set my ten…” will be going to live close to a church.
and my own personal favorite placement,
- “Thou crusty batch of nature.” will soon be seen on a baker’s van.
I can only hope my townsfolk have a sense of humor.
