Excitement = Run-On Sentence

"Can we leave now, Mom?"

"No, babe. It's 7:00am. Summer school doesn't start for an hour."

"Okay, but I want to be on time because I'm meeting Felix and then we have almost every class together and I'm not sure which one is going to be my favorite either because it's maybe gonna be stop motion animation or watercolors or clay creations or creative writing or make your own book and I already packed my lunch and they'll have recess too so maybe I can play some soccer and how about now? Is it time to leave yet now?"


  1. Maybe he's practicing to be like William Faulkner? (In Intruder in the Dust, there's one sentence that runs over 4 pages in length -- if I remember correctly.)
    Anyway, Bob's is definitely not a Hemingway sentence. :)
