no, I didn't just compare myself
I've got about a thousand words for the next section, and wondering why I'm wasting all my writing energy on something that isn't even very good.

Merton is back and gets the best line. Honestly, I need to just write the whole thing from his POV with his quietly snarky observations.

D wanted to know what it was about, so I told him, and he asked, well, what's the conflict going to be, because they can't just get married and then spend the rest of the story having crazy sex.

To which I say WHY NOT.

I mean, did someone go up to Pinter after seeing Betrayal and say, "Hey, cool play, bro, but you can't have the story unfold in reverse."

It's called INNOVATING.

Hey, I read that! It took a few seconds to click, but that was one of the assigned readings in my playwriting class. Most enjoyable class I took in my whole damn college career, that. Never made less than an A on every single assignment.

Anyway, that play was pretty cool, though my class was pretty much in agreement that the screwed up chronology was the only thing that made it interesting, and had it been in regular order, it would not have been nearly as good. Which, I suppose, was the idea.

I'm partial to Seinfeld's homage myself.
