The first 'The' is also a haiku. Now that's minimalist!

I was going to leave a comment, but you seem to be doing fine by yourself.
Almost felt like I was walking in on you. Sorry.

I'll close the door behind me.

TimT said...

No, no. Please do comment. What door? I think I've run out of possible ways to use 'the', anyway.

You may have run out of possible uses of "The", but John Grisham seems to never run out. Contact him.

My father asked me, as a child (which might go some way to explaining a couple of later-life idiosyncrasies), if I could think of a sentence that used the word "and" five times in a row.
He then told me a tale about a fish and chips shop owner who was unsatisfied with a signwriter's efforts.
The signwriter had not left enough space between "fish" and "and" and "and" and "chips".

Thought I'd mention it.
I'll shut the door.

Seems rather more Dada, or after-Dada than minimalist to me.

Mitziest literature: End the 'the'.

(More words from our best blogger the better.)

Series of obnoxious smiley faces intended to convey readerly appreciation from afar resulting in mere twee expression of smarmical glibness. Followed by deletion of smiley faces.
