You know when you're trying to remember something and you can't? It's on the tip of your tongue and for the life of you, you just can't remember it? And it just... it just drives you mad?

That's the horseman I'd be.

That, or like, stubbed toe.

Curt Eskridge | 90 comments I was just listening to Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett. He mentions a few groups of alternate Horsemen in there as well- The Four Horsemen of the Common Cold sniffles, chesty, windy and lack of tissues, and the Four Horsemen that fore-shadow a public holiday storms, gales, sleet and contraflow.

Havva The horseman of people who ask if they can cut in line because they are in a hurry and only have one item, and then call for their wife to join them with the full shopping cart.

Actually, I could just be the horseman of waiting in line at my local supermarket, something wacky always happens.
