I wrote this and it was deleted, so I don't remember it all, and am annoyed, but basically this is how it is for a writer with a fuzzy head: You stumble in, mumbling to your partner, "What is that word that means poop you put on flowers?" And he suggests manure, compost, others; you say, "No, it's one syllable..." And he says, "Mulch?" "Yes!" you exclaim, only to return to your desk to write about the planting methods for a particular flower and then call back to him, your brain still fuzzy and mush, "What was that word again?"
