Dilapdiated lapidary, dilated "sez Tom"on the sidewalk, walking to the porch, with the muted street lights and the scrub grass. Doesn't that sound wonderful "sez Tom"and he repeats it again. "Earlier he asked me"Do you find more interest in the story or the words? And I really was caught flatfooted. Didn't even know what to answer, had to really think, took 75 seconds, that was a good question and finally "I said"words. And I had thought to the book. And to what makes a story move for me, and finally "I said"words. I disagree now.
