Mesodiplosis

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

There’s no time like the future! There’s no time like the past! There’s no time like the right time & the right time is now! Let’s go visit the Russians! I think we can learn a lot from them about things like stealing, money laundering and bribery! Also, after dealing with the Russians, you know Dad can tell us a thing or two about money laundering too. In fact, he may be better at it than they are! Come on Donny, let’s catch a cab over to the consulate!

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!

We didn’t win today, and I’m not going to give up. Today, we haven’t achieved our highest hopes, and I’m not going to feel disheartened. I am not the winner today, and I’m not going to be the loser tomorrow. It isn’t over yet.  There’s a long way to go. We will prevail. We will win.
