Whatโ€™s The Difference Between A River And A Creek And A Brook And A Stream?

 

My mom apparently knows a way to get toothpaste back in the tube. She says sheย learned it from a Japanese variety show.

Iโ€™ve seen the Japanese variety show before. It looks like the Japanese version ofย Sabado Gigante.

I once heard a pimp from Richmond use the phrase โ€˜one or two are close to nothingโ€™ inย reference to losing one or two of his female employees.

โ€˜Her name is the name of a shoeโ€ฆ That black guys love. And people stand in line forย hours, days, to get them.โ€™

I got on the bus and my face went from a frown, to a smile, to, for a brief moment, aย neutral expression, then back to a frown.

โ€˜Cynicism is a quality i no longer admire,โ€™ I heard someone on the bus say.

My facial expression and my actual feelings are rarely on the same page.

Once at a company party my boss asked if I was having fun. I said yes, and my bossย said, โ€˜someone should tell your face.โ€™ It came off meaner than she intended, I think.

In my head I said โ€˜I would rather watch a rerun of a golf tournament than be here.โ€™

Thereโ€™s a guy at my work from Alabama who refers to spray paint as rattle cans.

My life is dormant and exhausting.

A want to wallow in something, physically or emotionally.

A river is a large natural stream of water flowing in a channel to the sea or a lake. Aย creek is a minor tributary of a river. A brook is a small stream. A stream is a narrowย river.
