Mesodiplosis


Mesodiplosis (mes-o-dip-lo’-sis): Repetition of the same word or words in the middle of successive sentences.

I heard my conscience calling and it told me to apologize. I listened to my conscience calling and I apologized.

I’m glad I got the “My Conscience Calling” app for my iPhone. It’s free and it has repeatedly settled my troubled soul.

The only problem with the app itself  is that before “My Conscience Calling” calls, you’ve got to text “My Conscience Calling” (622) and leave a TWEET-sized message explaining your vexation. But that’s a minor hassle because in under 30 seconds “My Conscience Calling” texts you back with an answer! The ring tone sounds like thunder and the iPhone flashes on and off like lightening.

It’s like having the Wizard of Oz in your pocket!

No more sleepless nights spent anguishing!

Flush the Lunesta!

Spit out the ZZZQuil!

When I hear my conscience calling, I know everything’s going to be all right!
