(overheard on the car radio this morning; an RJ gushing about the film Love Story, just after she’d played the title song)
"I don’t think there can be a single human being walking the face of the earth who didn’t feel boundless love oozing out of every pore of their bodies when they first saw this film."
Now I’m broadminded enough to accept that I must share the planet with people who liked that film. But did that sentence really need "single human being", "face of the earth", "boundless love", "oozing" and "pore of their bodies" all packed into it? Radio jockeys, I tell you. I’m going to have an accident one of these days just because it’s dangerous to take notes while driving.
