to explode with mixed emotions

Lohbado swelled up and nearly burst
Lohbado felt bloated from eating peanuts and yoghurt, which he bought at a small store next to a gas station at a crossroads of secondary highways on the Plains of Radiation. He felt both hungry and full. His legs felt cramped. Lohbado stopped the 1967 Chevrolet Impala, had a drink of water and decided to hike across an empty cow pasture to have a look at the river.

primal ooze

Primal ooze, moisture, digestion gave rise to the Oozmos. Visceral activity, scheming, relaxing, up and down of the wheel, good times, troublesome times, Lohbado was born as a result of his parents. The world was there before he was born and would continue after he died. Lohbado existed within various settings for a while. He had the illusion of being the centre of the universe, until he sat down to have a look at his body and mind and what was going on around him. Lohbado felt happy to be a temporary grain of sand, part of the infinite. In looking closely at his mind, he became mesmerized by the sheer strangeness and mystery of existence.

very very tired

tires in Kangirsuk, Nunavik
Lohbado barely made it out the door. Heavy parka, giant boots and hat, Lohbado staggered down the snowy sidewalk. Each winter became more difficult to endure. Lohbado realized he was entering the last phase of his mortal trajectory.

dead body

Al shot somebody
Somebody usually gets shot in cowboy movies. Dead bodies pile up in movies such as Good Bad and the Ugly or The Wild Bunch. Here's the Club Morono cowboy story corpse, dead as a doornail.
