    Limp moment

    Hello,

    The text I need to help with is:

    "They think they’re unseen, but I notice every f*cking thing; I didn’t get where I am without noticing. I’ll settle scores with Suzie as well, once I make my comeback. With my new eight-incher and never a limp moment, no pills or injections needed ever again. She won’t know whether to scream Stop! or More! She’ll be terminally f*cked in all senses of the word, and then I’ll toss her out."

    Headlife by Margaret Adwood, 2012

    Does the new eight-incher means a new penis (the story is about an old man waiting for his body to be replaced with a new and young one) and never a limp moment - no erection problems?

    Thank you very much for help

    Re: Limp moment

    Just out of curiosity. Why on Earth did you choose this book to read?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Limp moment

    I am a big fan of science fiction/horror genre, and the book Shadow Show (having excellent ratings) is a tribute to Ray Bradbury, containing short stories by modern sci-fi/fantasy authors like Campbell, Gaiman, Weller etc. It is not my fault they chose the language they chose.

    I thought he was talking about a gun.

    No, That is all. Besides, the guy using the invectives is properly punished at the end of the story.
