‘Aargragaah,’ said Detritus, mournfully.

‘Don’t mind me, just don’t spit on my boot,’ said Vimes.

‘It mean—-‘ said Detritus waved a huge black hand, ‘like . . . . dem things, what only comes in  . . . ‘ he paused and looked at his fingers while his lips moved ‘. . . fours.  Aargragaah. It mean lit’rally der time when you see dem little pebbles an you jus’ know dere’s gonna be a great big landslide on toppa you and it already too late to run. Dat moment, dat’s Aargragaah.’

Vimes own lips moved. ‘Forbodings?’

‘Dat’s der bunny.’

‘Where does the word come from?’

Detritus shrugged. ‘Maybe it named after der soun’ you make just as a t’ousand ton of rock hit you.’

About Transremaxculver

An entirely fictitious username I created for posting on 'alt.religion.scientology', Scientology is something of which I am highly critical. For those of you who don't know, the Church of Scientology have a habit of making life very uncomfortable for even the most legitimate of critics, which is why this username is completely anonymous. Anyway I have become quite fond of this username, and although it has to some extent outgrown it's original purpose, I think a blog is perhaps the right place for me/it to continue to grow and develop.
