Patchy

I noticed the word "patchy" and kind of closed my eyes. And the thing about the word "patchy" in the April of a northern hemisphere is the word or words that follow it.

And I'll tell you this much it's not "patchy outbreaks of happiness" or "patchy internet access." It's something more like "patchy locust swarms" the forecasters are calling for.

Patchy does send chills into the heart, doesn't it? I hope it's not too bold of me to suggest that the writer might need to spend some time outside this evening scurrying about, as much out of fear of the Artist's wrath as anything else.
