Sometimes, you read something and think, wha???? Maybe I’m speaking another language, but… no, that really didn’t make sense. Today’s example:
“The silence that followed the enraged shouting could have smashed a cow.”
It’s weird; I live in Kansas, and yet I didn’t know that cattle were susceptible to be smashed by silence. Or is it smashed like drinking? Can it be so quiet that a cow becomes intoxicated? These are things I should find out. There are cattle very close to town; perhaps some observation is in order.
