He was the sort of man ... (1 Viewer)

He was a lone wolf, a type of man that didn’t need a crowd to stay alive.
I know the sort, the sort of man who, in a different age would have been a shepherd or a trapper, or ran a lighthouse, and lived on his own for most months of the year, but now lives happily alone in the middle of the crowded city.

The crowded city clouds my thoughts,
Now I choose to sit all alone with my thoughts
and ink.

He was the sort of man who smashed any glass as soon as someone asked if it was half full or half empty.

They say it’s till death we do part, but, he was the sort of man who never gave up on her, often re-using her bones to make good soup.

Slightly disturbing, maybe colonials say it differently, but surely "Til death us do part" :)

He was the sort of man, whom on a cold and stormy night, closed the port hole in the cabin’s cabin, lest there be gun shots in the hills.

No maybe, we say it differently down under, as in marriage vows not the old late 60’s TV sitcom

any self respecting cannibal knows a good wife who is special should not be eaten all in one meal. Cold cut and sandwiches at a minimum the next day and bones for soup. PS slow cook the tongue. Such a strongly used muscle can be tough if cooked too quickly.

he was the sort of man who liked having women over for dinner, but only if there was sufficient freezer space.

He was the kind of old man who waited weekly for the garbage men to come and mess something up as if their lack of excellence was the confirmation of everything he knew was wrong with the world and his written complaints to the county were the confirmation of all of his unused genius.
