Well first off Woody does not ask me to edit his papers very often because he says that I "write like Shakespeare" (for reals, that's a direct quote). Now really, I am not quite that eloquent, but I can say that I don't believe I have gotten anything less than A on a paper here at BYU.... but enough boasting.
I started out pretty good and even got a little ahead of myself and read the article he was reviewing to make sure I got the whole picture. Unfortunately it got pretty late and I got a little bit crazy.... My addition to the paper ended when I insisted that woody say something along the lines of
"The author lulled the reader into a sense of security allowing them to feel comfortably engaged. And then she POUNCED'.
I am not sure but either the word "lull" or "pounced" made Wood feel a little uneasy about the sentence. I'm guessing pounced since he ended up using the word "lull".
We ended up having a great time and laughing about different variations of pounce, then wood took the computer away from me, tucked me into bed and finished his paper... a typical school night at the Palmer House.
