[tweetmeme source=”breeogden” only_single=false]It’s writing like this that makes me extremely happy to be in this profession:
“It wasn’t that Nickelan was oblivious to his filth in the way of a barnyard animal. He was conscious of his poor hygiene, but there was nothing he could do about it. To be clean meant to use the bathroom, which in the claustrophobic clutter of his home was the most suffocating room of all.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Wand loved to read. They had a spacious library. Its tall windows took in the bright light and its full shelves overflowed with books. There were comfortable chairs with comfortable throw pillows and comfortable ottomans on which to rest tired feet for marathon reading sessions. But Mr. and Mrs. Wand preferred the bathroom, where they read on the hard toilet seat.”
(Thanks to this particular client of mine.)
