I enjoy the Secret Living Language, but man, writing the dialogue is a pain. I want to purposely use clumsily obtuse words, but I also have to make what's being said understandable. I haven't always been successful. Its one of the reasons the Language keeps to short, to-the-point bursts of speaking, rather than making long expositions like this one a habit.

On the plus side, constantly going through the dictionary and thesaurus is doing wonders for my vocabulary :P

I was listening to the Doors when I got to this section, yes :P

Thanks. I have the ending pretty clear in my head, but the next issue (or two) isn't as well defined as I would like it. I hope to plow through the fuzziness over the long weekend, and reestablish a (mostly) weekly schedule. :)
