The tuxedo was too long in the sleeves and too tight around the belly. Derek had aged since the wedding 15 years ago, and not gracefully. He wanted to wear this to walk his daughter down the aisle, but that seemed an impossibility.

my family is distinguished in it’s capacity to fail and squander all the time and money onto mediocre living in order to merely survive and get on with life.

the professor was long due for a nap. he needed to rest because he was falling asleep during his lecture. he had worked very hard in earning tenure track but didn’t feel he’d ever deserve it. his students agreed.

Is there anything that makes me feel distinguished besides the freckle on my elbow? That’s a tough question and I’m not sure that I have an answer. Besides, I couldn’t think of a more distinguishing honor.

At that moment in time, I felt so distinguised from everyone else around me. I wasn’t like them, I couldn’t ever be and part of me didn’t want to anymore. These people couldn’t ever bring me happiness, I needed to find that in myself. I was sick and tired of all the lies and corruption surrounding me everyday while I worked with these “people”.

He was so much older than she had expected;. more her Dad’s age than Dave’s. He had that distinguished older gentleman thing going on, ebony hair with speckles of grey and a sparkle in his eyes at all the things he had seen.

If they even deserved to that have that title, cause they certainly weren’t human or humane by any length.

I feel as though I’m distinguished from the rest but doesn’t everyone else? I believe that it is my positives along with my flaws that makes me who I am. That’s why I believe that you must learn to accept people for who they are most of the time, unless they’re people who enjoy being hurtful. To others.

She, a distinguished lady
Sipped her tea
the Scents were sweet and heavy
He a man who worked with pride
He stood up straight and had a great stride
She decided that he
hard worker, was lesser
Because she lived in a big house
And he lived small
Be she worked nothing
And he worked all

I have a distinguished hat
There is s mahogany feather pointing out of it in a diagonal fashion.
My face is also distinguished.
There is a long, waxed mustache evenly sticking out on either side of my nostril.
I am quite posh.
By Jo! URL on 09.10.2011
they knew he was a distinguished man. he surrounded himself with wealth, living as a billionaire in one of the world’s finest homes that money could buy. he had servants to keep him satisfied, other distinguished friends to keep him company, lady-friends to keep him entertained, drugs to keep him sane. he wanted more, though. he wanted to be like the peasants he saw on the streets, laughing and dancing through the rain and slush and poverty and dirt from below. what distinction?

Angesehen war ihre Familie schon immer gewesen. Immer wieder, egal wie alt sie war, bekam sie gesagt, wie toll ihr Vater doch sei, was für eine Ehre es sei, dass sie seine Tochter sein konnte. Doch was brachte es schon seine Tochter zu sein, wenn man selbst sicht so nicht wohlfühlte? Nein, das tat sie definitiv nicht. Sie wurde behandelt wie eine Prinzessin, eine einsame Prinzessin, die zwar ansehen genoss, der es dadurch aber an Freunden mangelte.

Distinguished is a word that describes me. No one else but me. I am writing in a quite distinguished manner. Oh gosh, I am running out of words to describe distinguished.
By Emmy on 09.10.2011
I distinguished his grave from all the others, even in the darkness. I could feel his hand on my shoulder, his voice whispering in my ear, saying, “Let go, Amelia. Let go.” I closed my eyes and pictured him in front of me, tears rolling down my cheeks as I thought about us flying the kite. But I breathed in deep and let it out slow, letting him out as I exhaled. Andy was no longer a burden…but a blessing.

i have never been able to separate some of my feelings. ten years ago i was on vacation. i was dating someone with a September 12th birthday. we planned to be in Hawaii. we didn’t know then, but it would be the worst vacation ever. i have never distinguished my feelings of angst, horror, nausea, elation, concern, care, excitement, terror and so many others i can’t name because my grandmother had quadruple bypass surgery on the 10th, the world trade center disasters happened on the 11th, his birthday was the 12th and i woke up with a sinus infection.. had to go to urgent care, spent the day asleep and Honolulu was closed. worst.

Distinguished men wear cravats, top hats, and leather belts, watch fobs and trophy wives. Playwrights blacklisted by the Pope don’t give a damn.
By MO URL on 09.10.2011
Distinguished is a funny word (which is a pretty easy way to start out a “OneWord,” but let me explain. It’s one of those words you can say that *sounds* positive, but doesn’t really mean anything. A “distinguished” choice is not the same as an “honorable” or “exemplary” choice for a position of high responsibility.
I don’t know, just something to think about.
By S.C. Nolan URL on 09.10.2011
The way he distinguished himself was an usual one, he eschewed all modern-day grooming practices. The hair from his head flowed like a stream from his scalp to below his waistline — he could sit on it when requested to at a party — and his beard erupted in little puffs from his chin, and surrounded his mouth like wiry gray cloud.
By Marian writes URL on 09.10.2011
I can’t believe how he doesn’t see it. How he thinks he’s so average, so ordinary. Nothing about him is ordinary. The way he talks, the way he walks, the way he is. When I see him walking trough the streets, so calm and beautiful. I don’t think he walks knowing what to expect from the world. Maybe a bit naive, but it’s adorable. So pure, so free. So amazingly fantastic, He’s one of the most distinguised people I know.

She leaned back in her chair, gently twisting her lemon wedge into her water and then discarding the misshapen hull over her shoulder.
Wedging one hand between her overlapping belly and the waistband of her assless denim shorts, she let out a guttural belch.
“Ah, now that’s clean living.”
By Karsh URL on 09.10.2011
I tried to distinguish myself from the rest. I advertised myself as open-minded, loyal, caring, hilarious, intelligent, sarcastic, and loving. But everyone took advantage of me, so I took myself off the market. Friends weren’t worth my everything.
By Marissa URL on 09.10.2011
distinguished honor roll my ass. it means nothing. i’m just as big a low-life as any other kid. the only difference is i test well and give a shit what people think about me. i’m proud when my name’s in the newspaper because i know there are people who don’t know me and don’t know anything about me but see my name and they know.
By enrider URL on 09.10.2011
They say he’s a distiguished man, with awards to his name and an impressive education. All I see is a cheating bastard, a pretty face for the cameras and a derisive attitude for the rest that don’t matter.

It took awhile; I had to trudge through a lot, over land of varying terrain, rugged and rocky in its texture, sometime so sharp that its points pierced through my feet, holding me back. But I made it.

“Distinguishing features. Blond hair, blue yes, freckles, glasses, scars, hair streaks. Anything?”
“Agent, I did already mention I’m blind didn’t I?”
“Oh… I would have thought such an distinguished young man would have noticed something…”
((believe I read that wrong ^^))

There are many ways to tell an asshole from a business man. A distinguished Jerk with small amount of self respect is a business man.
By Lucian Petrova URL on 09.10.2011
I could never distinguish myself from you. I couldn’t pick out the memories of my own life that didn’t have you right next to me or in the background. You were always a thought, always one of the first thoughts because that’s what happens when you spend almost all your life with the same person beside you.
By Cassie URL on 09.10.2011
what is a distinguished person like? is that one who has achieved something? who refuses anything mediocre? sometimes the definition is baffling or unclear.

He carried the most distinguished cane at the race track. Women swooned at the sight of his dapper attire. To think, 100 years from now this place would be populated with little more than gambling addicts and washed up bookies.
By WDC URL on 09.10.2011
There was once a gentleman at a party. His hat was black, and his cane was shined. HIs shoes were of the finest quality and attracted the attention of every patron in the room. He entered every new venue with a sweep of his cape and a flash of his smile, his monocle twinkling in the light. His mustache twitched with every new endeavor, with every sip of brandy, and every swirl of scotch, this man was distinguished.
By mike thompson on 09.10.2011
You see a gentleman with a top hat and a cane – his eyes look familiar so you stop to stare. But he just walks on by, whistling a tune and dancing with the wind tapping at his back.
(and, right there, in the middle of the Big Easy, you fall in love with him).
hoity toity rare and treasured
served upon a silver platter
reaching and experienced by so few
we’ll crash the doors
the fire of upper crustiness
By drewd URL on 09.10.2011
distinguished makes me think of drinking a glass of water.and I like saying it.
I guess I’m distinguished. People say I am. But I don’t feel that way. Why should I be a distinguished soldier with so much honor if all I’ve done to get my medals is kill? Isn’t that a felony? Killing people, I mean. Why am I being honored tomorrow for my services of murder?
By Jessica on 09.10.2011
She was distinguished for being alone all the time, the people considered weird, but what they didn’t know all what she needed was attention just, someone to talk to.
By regina URL on 09.10.2011
I had a creative writing teacher once upon a time who had such a distinguished looked about him and his diction was perfection. I could listen to him forever, but he broke my heart when he told me that my poetry was as original as a kitchen sink.
By spartica URL on 09.10.2011
I am not telling.
as I put myself on yourself
what transpires is unsound
like a tempest train chewing our ears.
one ear, three ear, no ears.
and you never learned to read my lips.

She sat in the food court, headphones blaring, 17 and pissed off for no particular reason. She sipped her frozen lemonade and watched the grey haired men on their lunch breaks like animals in a zoo. She examined the distinguished lines on their faces, their crisp suits and handsome ties. She wondered if they had ever been 17 and pissed off just like she was.
By Julie URL on 09.10.2011
I extinguished a fire right before my eyes. I said something that had burned and raged in my heart that I had no idea how to tame. I did three simple moves- the three hard words to say. And it all started to become clear. I could see through the smoke and worry. I could rest now after the panic was gone. I distinguished my feelings from all of the other girls. And I could tell- just by this feeling, that he loved me too.
