Six and Counting

by Hal Sirowitz

I only have six sentences to tell you about myself. Now it's just five. I want to argue that the above is not really a sentence but a fragment? Shouldn’t two fragments equal one sentence? Let’s say I made a mistake and thought there were seven? Is this piece about me or censorship?

Also too, I'm assuming that questions count as sentences.

This tells us more about you than you may realize. Like...never get into an argument with this man!

quin browne said...

coming back, i have to say... this is clever, the way you worked the sentences...however, twice now, it's seemed to be a bit of a nose thumbing to the format.

one never knows, do one?
