34 Entries for “grounded”

  1. Ich wäre so gern geerdet. Fest verwurzelt, so dass mich kein Wind mehr umwerfen kann. Fest verwurzel, um mich von den Wassern zu nähren, die tief im Untergrund ihre Wege finden. Ich wäre gern wie ein Baum, der jedes Jahr seine Blätter verliert und im Frühjar neue wachsen lässt und dabei dicker, höher und stärker wird.

  5. Mister and Missus Shank grounded their daughter Abby for exactly three weeks, two days, seven hours, and thirteen minutes. The reasoning for this was simple: It would fall right on the very end of her fourteenth birthday. Their neighbors, Mister Wainsworth, was floored. What exactly had Abby done, he wondered aloud, to deserve such a long and meticulously timed punishment?

    “She tried to summon the devil,” Missus Shank explained to him over tea.

  13. “He’s very well grounded,” the secretary said. I heard her through the crack in the door, after I had been sitting and waiting for this audience for two hours. It felt good to be perceived in that way.

    The job interview was tiring. Too many questions which seemed to lead nowhere and prove nothing. And at the end, the usual response, after asking when I could start and the salary limitation. “We’ll get back to you.”

    I left the office in a daze and entered the elevator. To keep with my appearance of being calm and well-grounded, I kept a straight face. But inside I wanted to scream and break things.
