I came across this sentence in a notebook today. The pages were all recent, but “I have no current recollection” of any context for the sentence. (As Confederate Confederate Sessions would say.) I remember writing it for some future use at Dunkin Donuts while I was waiting for a friend. I have no idea what “future use” I had in mind, if any.
Here it is:
“With all sphincters clenched at the audacity of what he had just said out loud, the interviewee appeared to hold his breath until he was sure that he was not about to be arrested.”
Now that I have it, what can I do with it?
It’s a beauty, isn’t it?
