A Perfect Simile

Some people are never happy unless they're causing trouble. The sort my wife calls "a disturber". I read the most wonderful description of "disturbers" the other day: "she rolls like a pinless grenade through the rooms of other people's lives". Isn't that wonderful? I grinned for five minutes over that.

(The memory never was all that razor-keen and age hasn't done it any favours so no complaining if you too read it somewhere and it's not letter-perfect. I did note the author: Andrew Taylor in "A Stain on the Silence".)
