Tock Tick, Dong Ding

I figured it didn't sound right because we've always heard it the other way round. Turns out there are rules.

I'm so glad I read that when I was high. Like, really high. Just overdid the King Kush, took a swig of Gin, smoked a Camel.... High. Not the Kush King, but the King Kush. Kingally Dingally Kush.

Also, I'm going to try to reverse the normal order of this kind of phrase going forward, to see if people are taken aback.

You should too. It'll be funny.

I'm reminded of the day that Momdigr put her flip-flops on the wrong feet, and walked around all day going flopflip, flopflip, flopflip.

Bruce, that was an enjoyable article. Thank you for sharing it.

I didn't realize there were rules. Especially the multiple adjective rules. I sometimes find myself struggling with the order of adjectives because I know they sound wrong, but don't know how to do it correctly.

It surprised me there are actually rules. I guess I just played it by ear going by what I normally hear(read) others doing my whole life.

Oh shit, I've been brainwashed by our Syntax Overlords.
