She’d do the press junkets herself, if she could. Sweep through Jon, Brian—even Fox—like a cold front. She’d list the dangers of ignoring the mute, then say through gritted teeth: “Each sneeze is an earthquake; each cough, a freak storm.”

  1. Lovely personification. Great last line. I also liked the ‘if she could’ – as if it implies there are things other than the physical restrictions stopping her making the rounds.

  2. I love the the modern take on Mother Earth. And I *really* like that you and Stacie took similar approaches, but in two completely different styles, and both came out with something fabulous.

Tell me about it.
