Fear or Terror?
I have a file of metaphors and similes and pithy sayings into which I drop things from time to time. Came across it, and rediscovered one I've always thought was amusing. If I haven't posted it here before, I should have.
Regarding the difference between "fear" and "terror."
Fear is the first time you can't get it up twice.
Terror is the second time you can't get it up once ...
If you are too young or inexperienced to understand these references, then you ought not to be reading this blog. Go and ask Daddy what "get it up" means. Don't tell him where you read it. Tell him you heard Uncle Bobbe say something about it ...
