Euphrati Keeler.

the irregular cog

It's been a while since I read or wrote any Warhammer fiction.

I love riddles:

I have a mouth but never speak, I have a bed but never sleep, I always run and never tire. What am I?

Some are swift to take it.
Others must be coaxed.

I don't reckon you're born with anything.

How do you fall in?
The seat is up but there's still the rim of the bowl.

But that's different.
There are two flaps: the toilet seat and the toilet lid.

I've never had a girlfriend complain about the toilet seat, and my roommate, who's female, also never mentions it.
Thus, I've never had the opportunity to ask why you don't want the seat up.
So I...

They are my favourite garment.

Y/A includes people up to the age of 19?!

Surely not.

by 16, if you're into reading, you're reading adult books.
