    A gallifreyan closet that’s bigger on the inside?  That sounds very dangerous, because it’s probably carniverous   Though, I might recommend you carry one of those emergency alert beacons that prepared back country skiers carry in case they get buried in an avalanche.

    I didn’t know how bad it was until I opened a closet door that was stuck and nearly vanished beneath a cascade of reader’s digest and boxes like a demented version of tetris and the closet just kept disgorging junk.
    … I know she’s sick and perhaps been that way for a long time but nearly dying from detritus of the ages is gonna stick with me for awhile.

    Yay to the good news, and yikes to the bad news. Hoarding is brutal to deal with, but sadly it’s got to be handled.

    What’s the title of the book that was dedicated?  It sounds like it would be either the best read ever, or a major disappointment.  With the parents the author claimed to have had...

    I have never been quite certain what exactly the Oxford comma is… but I’m going to assume that it has something to do with Merle Haggard’s two ex-wives, Kris Kristofferson and Robert Duvall… and the rest of those outlandish claims  
    And I’d also like to know the title of this book, just for reference

    “Bomb” typically pronounces itself “boom,” so there is that.

    Not to mention cough, rough, dough, and bough.
    Also, I’m glad they called it a vowel shift and not a vowel movement.

    Well, it gets more fascinating if you actually delve into it.  English itself was undergoing a “great vowel shift” where the pronunciations were shifting at the same time the spellings were being standardized, which is why there’s numerous examples of the pronunciation oddities.
    For instance, add “comb” into your example.  Or use Laughter & Daughter.

    Its true though. Absolutely is that age old question brought to life.
    Why are things happening? Because people are flawed drama llamas living in a world where gods and monsters are active make no pretense of being human or having human values and the horrors of the dark age just barely passed.
