  1. An angle in a triangle, a shifty, sideways way of approaching things, darkness. Has somewhat of a negative meaning, at least in my mind….grim, unclear, maybe not true. Unsure whether that is the real meaning or not…

  3. Her mind was oblique to the world, slightly off-balance and askew. She asked the questions; she treaded deep waters of worldliness, searched through man-made forests for the remainder of the original world. She was the kind of girl that made you believe you didn’t have to experience the world in the way everyone told you you did.

  4. I never can remember the exact definition of this word. I know how to use it only because I’ve used it before, and I can only guess what it actually means by having it in a phrase like “I withdraw from you by being oblique.” Frustrating.

  6. “It is Scarlatti, isn’t it?” she asked. Where had this oblique reference come from? Why is she asking me? I can hear her talk but the meaning is not connecting with my brain.

    “Yes, probably,” I replied. “Maybe you should ask someone who is into that sort of music. Give me a good rap tune any day, at least that gets you moving.”

    “You don’t hear classical music on the bus often,” she said and paused, “Then again, if you were on a crowded bus with rap music playing, by the time you go off you would be spat out like a programmed zombie.”

  9. The future was dark and grey, clouds of dark uncertainty gliding over the horizon line. An oblique sense of self-doubt welled in me as each sandy footstep dragged me closer to the preface of inevitability. My vision tunneled around me, and I could only see one possible outcome. A cliff.

  18. he came at me differently than I expected. The word, in retrospect would be oblique, but at the time i just thought, holy shit!, I’m screwed. He is a much better fighter than I thought he was from looking at him.

  21. I’m going to be honest I had to look this up to make sure I had the definition right. And I saw things such as not straightforward. And that pretty much defines me. The direction that my life takes me in is constantly changing. But I love it. I am always being surprised.

  22. To be honest I had to look this up to make sure I had it right. But when I did I came up with the definition: Not straightforward. And that defines me and my life. My life path constantly changes. I love it, the surprises that get thrown at me are always wonderful, but can sometimes change my entire life, or how I thought about certain things.

  23. Why must everyone be so oblique? Why can’t everyone just hang out with everyone without being awkward? I don’t see the big deal, or does having one couple in the group mean we can’t hang out without awkwardness? It’s like we can’t even appear in a group photo anymore.

    I’m tired of people trying to avoid us. If we want ‘alone time’, we tell you or you ask us if we need it. Is it really that difficult?

  24. Obliques. This conjures up an image of a smelly, noisy gym. Working out. Side to side. Working those obliques. Sweating profusely. All in the name of fitness and health. Really? Trying to produce a six pack. Flat stomach. Twising side to side. Feeling the pull of muscle. Are there really obliques under those donuts that have formed a ring around my waist? Obliques. I’m ready!

  25. The dawn broke on the first day of my life at precisely 5:43 am. I had just installed those brilliant blackout curtains, but, of course they were a knock-off, because I wanted a deal, and a tiny stream of light filtered on to your stomach, which had been uncovered in the warm night. Again, time stopped, and your memory danced its way into my head forever.

  26. This world looks very oblique at times, but its not. Love and life are the best things you can find. You just need to look for it, jump for it. There is no telling what you will find. Take a chance and who knows what you can achieve.

  27. The path to our destination was one that can only be described as oblique. There wasn’t necessarily an end but there was a culminating point. The only issue was that the travelers didn’t know where they were going. They just went, each day, trudging forward with an idea of where to go but no exact thought of where it was.

  31. The painting was alive with fire and a sandy look. While he was painting he did not hear the wall crumbling behind. The tank rolled through, crushing him, his neck bent at an oblique angle on his still warm body.

  32. Muscles. That had to be one of the hardest parts of my anatomy class. So many times I’ve thought about quitting that class. Oh, but I want to be a nurse so bad, I can just taste it. No way a difficult class can stop me from my desire to help people in need.

  33. Can’t see what’s missing. Can’t can’t can’t can’t. The shadow is the thing, the entity, some beings last forever others are molds of the rest of air. The silence, the bleak, the change, the way we curve. Sometimes I look at a homeless person and wonder what would have to die to make them sane. Good lord we are marble and all our statues are unfinished and dead.

  37. It was with a great effort that he lifted the rubble. His muscles strained and burned under his dark skin, making him pinch his eyes shut as the doctor pulled the victim out from the crushing darkness. Faster, he thought to himself, please go faster. And when the man was out, he was only too happy to drop the concrete.
