Gramatically speaking (my grammar is awful)
, Johnny seems to like 'odd' grammar. Like in my Johnny quote below, in my footer. I've also seen him comment about useage of commas somewhere else also. The writing style might also have ingrigued him. Perhaps he is sort of rebellious to the idea of 'words being put into a box' ending with a period. Kind of synonymous to the novel's theme as well, come to think of it. The first real sentence doesn't do much. But then
really taking a look at the next sentence! Wow! Commas and semicolins galore! And very descriptive too. If you put the second sentence in to a group of sentences, it would loose it's depth of description and feeling. It does remind me of the On the Road book.
It's a lovely autmn day.
Trees are shedding their foliage on the lawn; all bundled up, residents are strolling along the asphalt paths, shuffling through clumps of dead leaves; an ambulance is pulling up to what will be the new arrival's last home; sitting next to Alzheimer, my arms stretched wide on the back of the bench, my relaxed little smile hovering like a seagull on the breeze, I breathe the fresh air of the garden and grounds of Happy Days.
He also mentions hovering here too.
And the shuffling through clumps of dead leaves...symbolic of the residents being near death. But he is hovering.
He also seems to enjoy being BESIDE Alzheimer rather than becoming Alzheimer.
