Ha! Oxygen Thief. I'll have to remember that one. :) And for Doctor Who fans, Ood has a completely different meaning...ReplyDelete
My husband likes Dr. Who but I've only seen snips of episodes as I walk thru the room where he's watching. He made me sit thru about 2 minutes of Blink and I had to leave!Delete
I love the term oxygen thief! I frequently refer to such people as a waste of oxygen or skin cells.ReplyDelete

Oxygen Thief - great title for a book or one of John Frain's A to Z challenge stories. Fun stuffReplyDelete
Oh, wouldn't it be fun to do an A to Z challenge from the antagonist's point of view?! Here comes May... HA, no way, this is too exhausting. April's killing me.Delete
You all are too funny! Why not a May challenge John? I'd read them.Delete
I'm also in love with the term "oxygen thief"! Thank you for that. And, like Colin, OOD took my brain in a whole different direction.ReplyDelete
Glad you're enjoying your OOD =)Delete
Ah, the oxygen thief. Would that they were only limited to the military, but I think they've invaded every area of our lives.ReplyDelete
Yep, I know several people who qualify. And some of them I see in court attempting to pretend they're a licensed attorney...........Delete
