"Snap, Crackle, Pop!" It's been quite a while since I've heard the distinctive sounds of "Rice Krispies" as milk splashed over cereal in my bowl. I'm a regular eater of cold cereals for breakfast and do prefer rice and wheat varieties over corn.
Those cute little animated characters representing sounds of snapping, crackling and popping are adorable. "Snap, Crackle, Pop" are welcome sounds at breakfast but frightening when people hear them coming from necks, backs, knees or ankles! A relative, who is also a facebook friend recently shared discomfort and plans to see a physician. Her news was not good; on the other hand, an email from a writer friend describing my writing as "crisp" was music to my ears.
Crisp: "fresh; bracing" (most applicable of definitions/ "Britannica World Language Dictionary")
"concise, terse, succinct, pointed"(a few terms from "Roget's International Thesaurus")
Succinct: "expressed with brevity and clarity, with no wasted words ("Encarta Dictionary")
"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned; but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son (John 3:17-18 NIV)." Crisp and correct!
