Slinky. can you describe Slinky and be believed?
She could break your heart, or make you snort out your coffee with a one line post, posts which to me always seemed they snuck into the thread.
Her Slinky - brilliant, whimsical musings made me feel like I was being tickled from the inside. Who but Slinky?
could draw bunnies and birthday cakes that you could never forget-- using only keyboard characters.
Who but ethereal, naughty Slinky could make X rated flirtatiousness endearing, as natural as breathing, and offensive only because it made your own attempts clutzy and overwrought.
Slinky could sneak into your heart without you knowing - until the day you'd find yourself saying "My chickens are freaking!!"
Then you were hooked.
She helped keep me alive one summer, we kept each other upright.. barely. God how she struggled, but never had a cruel word for anyone.
This is nothing really,it's for me.
Slinky was herself and
I can't pretend to know a tenth of who she was.
we weren't close friends, in the last year I'm not sure that we even said hello.
Still I think of her as one of the most exquisitly, painfully, precious people I've ever met.
No more pain slinky
No more ugliness
No more fear
No more razors
No more grief.
(and cuddles for days )
