Two-Fer Tuesday #24: Noir Narration

It's Tuesday, which means another Two Fer Tuesday.  If you're not acquainted with the rules, I use a random number generator to pick a page and paragraph to pluck two sentences from.  Let's see what we get this week.


Page Number: 86
Paragraph Number: 9
A little noir-sounding narration:

There were plenty of monsters in this city, but all of them of the human variety.  She would just have to figure out which one had nearly diced the kid up.

Tomorrow is another Superhero Trivia Challenge question! So be ready at 9AM EST...

  1. I started rolling my trash can out to the street this morning because its trash day - every Thursday - when I had an epiphany. It's NOT Thursday. How come it feels like I've worked for a week already? Anyway, your Tuesday teaser is just another reminder of how pissed I am. It can't be Tuesday, it just can't.

    1. You're right. It's really Thursday but we're all just pretending it's Tuesday. But now that I've let you in on our evil plan, I'll have eliminate you...

  2. Rusty makes an interesting comment. I work from home seven days a week and the days have long since lost their uniqueness. I can't recall what a Tuesday or a Thursday feel like.

  3. Nice two-fer. If only there weren't such a thing as human monsters in real life.

  5. That's kind of the theme in "The Walking Dead" or any post-apocalyptic tale for that matter. Not saying that yours is apocalyptic. I'm just saying that humans are the worst monsters. In "The Walking Dead" season three poster, the byline is "Kill the dead, fear the living." In Hugh Howey's "Wool" the ones to fear are the people you live with because they sentence people to go outside to die to clean the lenses so that they can view the destroyed world. Furthermore, they mind screw with the people that are forced to be cleaners by projecting a beautiful world through your visor so that you think it's a clean world and take off your helmet and then the poisonous air kills you.

    1. Great, I just bought that Wool book on sale last weekend and now you've probably spoiled it for me!
