Friday Spotlight: Kayelle Allen

June 1, 2012

Author Kayelle Allen is joining us today with a fabulous and funny guest post. Before I let her take over the e-rotica blog, let’s learn just a little more about her.

Kayelle Allen is an award-winning, multi-published author. Her heroes and heroines include badass immortals, warriors who purr, and agents who find the unfindable–or hide it forever. She is known for unstoppable heroes, uncompromising love, and unforgettable passion.

Folks, please visit Kayelle’s website for her complete (and awesome) bio.

Para Say Whatsis?

A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; they are frequently humorous. A website by Bill Casselman claims the word itself a a paraprosdokian — that it is not what it purports to be. That hasn’t stopped the definition from making the internet rounds. Here are a list of popular ones.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.

The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it’s still on my list.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.

We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.

War does not determine who is right – only who is left..

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

They begin the evening news with ‘Good Evening,’ then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. On my desk is a work station.

I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.

Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.

In filling out an application, where it says, ‘In case of emergency, notify:’ I put ‘doctor.’

Dolphins are so smart that, within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the edge of the pool and throw them fish.

I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

There’s a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can’t get away.

I used to be indecisive. Now I’m not so sure.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.

I’m supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

You’re never too old to learn something stupid.


Have you used a paraprosdokian? It doesn’t matter if it was on porpoise, or just for halibut. πŸ˜‰
