I both chuckled and groaned when I read Shawn Waite's cautionary tale.

It's amazing how annoying/unsettling it is for the first letter of every word to be not capitalized.

It is an odd effect, but I was just talking about the poem itself. To be fair, I think he was deliberately trying to write a groaner.

I lost a beach ball at the lake this way when I was a kid. It was shocking how fast something light can move across the water with the wind behind it.
