I worked all night and I'm quite proud of a delicately positioned 'the' amongst a huge glistening pile of otherwise worthless gibberish. I'll like to be rude to my wife just out of spite but flipping her the bird with a finger worn down to the second knuckle would lose its effect somehow. I could try to be rude some other way but it wouldn't have the same panache.
Going to try again tonight. I have a 'because' in mind that I've been working on all day. Just have to decide where I'm going to put it. It's so easy to spoil good prose with carelessly strewn conjunctions.
