if you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain
1. I suspect the "anthropologist at heart" is not comparing herself to more superficial anthropologists, but actually admitting a guilty secret . . . no? Like being a romantic. Or a chocoholic.
2. I'm switching to the London Review of Books right now!!
3. And is there a name for the (fairly common) comical bait and switch in pulsford's second example?
4. Also, note to my Aunt Eleanor (who is clearly the "yoga nazi"), don't you already have a "dumpy, bland moccasin-wearing M?" Work on him first then go looking for another one.
This cracks me up, obviously.
