    Yes – there are those that take it to an art form!
    I’ve heard that breathless moan of the universe before. (nice phrasing)

    If Agnes is an orphan, Granny would at least get Social Security for her. And truly, that child would complain if she got hung with a new rope, as my own Granny used to say.

    “Because she’d never take the kid in out of the goodness of her heart.”

    Just because some wouldn’t do good things out of the goodness of their hearts doesn’t mean others don’t.
    -
    The mere fact that Agnes still lives shows her grandmother is a very loving and forgiving person.

    Hope you don’t mind gallow humor, but that reminds me of a joke. ahem


    3 prisoners were sentenced to be executed by guillotine. The first prisoner steps up, the Executioner asks, face up or face down? The prisoner says, I’m a coward. Face down. He gets in the contraption, the excetunior pulls the handle, the blade races down and stops, an inch above the neck of the prisoner.


    It’s a sign from God, the people shout, release him. The grateful prisoner is then released.


    2nd prisoner, face up or face down? Prisoner says, I’m brave, face up, and to he!! with all of you. He gets in, again the blade stops an inch above his neck, and again the crowd cries out. The prisoner is released.


    The 3rd approaches the guillotine, face up or face down?


    Oh no, he says, I’m not getting in that thing until you get it fixed.

    It is hard to think of the near boundless cosmos as having nothing in it that is alive, or so far away as to not matter. Had that once last year. Cosmic angst. Don’t try it at home.

    Breathless moan…. more like a nattering mutter – the kind where you think what is being said is how the heck do I shut that sound out? But you’re not quite sure because there’s this unlying whhhinnnnneeeeee. …. Then you smell bacon cooking and forget about all that and focus on the bacon!

    Seems I’ve also heard a variation in which the engineer about to be beheaded tells them it doesn’t matter but first let him oil the race so it’ll quit sticking
