On The Words We Remember

“This isn’t a fair fight, I have you outnumbered, one to twelve.” That’s from one of Terry Pratchett’s books in his “Discworld” series and it was spoken by the seemingly invincible hero of one of them as he was being confronted in a cave. It stuck with me from all of those years ago, from back when I was a kid, for a few reasons. One being the absurd nature of that character in general, another being the direct language and his repeated warnings to the twelve(or whatever number it was) that were against him that he would kill all of them. It was bizarre on many levels.
