"J" is June

The month June is when Ennis & Jack "reunited" -- and it looked so good!  It would have been during Gay Pride Month except back then they didn't have it -- or any pride! :(

With a sudden kick to the head, Ennis knocked the biker out cold.

Jack's mom was very maternal to Ennis when he visted the Twist homestead after Jack's death.

N is neither

As the story says, "Neither of them was twenty."

As Fran suggested I've explained where I got that remark.  I'm sorry, it seems like we mostly all know the story and movie so well, it didn't seem necessary to explain that oft-quoted line.  I like that we are "in the know" and don't need to over-explain stuff.

"P" is piss
« Reply #618 on: April 15, 2006, 01:27:41 pm »
In the same liquidly-discharging vein as Round 20's "U" is for "urinate"....

Piss was what E&J definitely did in the woods, which was their entire BBM scenario.

=reply= "N"
"Neither of them was twenty" is a direct Annie Proulx quote from the short story. If Clarissa will add quotation marks or credit the author -- something along the lines of "Annie Proulx wrote" etc. -- it will clarify the vague and questionable post for everyone. An explanation is a requirement of the game.

Ennis:  "That harmonica don't sound quite right."

In America sex is an obsession.  In other parts of the world it is a fact.
