Real life intervenes

Key phrases for the last four days: dinner for six on three hours’ notice; emergency meeting; water heater; house guests; vacuum cleaner; emergency room; car battery; book cover; phone call from (different, distant) hospital; four chapters due; other book cover; different emergency meeting; missed deadline on book design; letter of recommendation; discovered piracy on MySpace. No connections or commonalities among any of those phrases or events other than their temporal proximity. Too implausible even for a soap opera. Deep cleansing breaths. Back to work, Dick.

Don't breathe too deeply, Dick. After an interlude like that, you might get dizzy.
