I regularly contribute snippets of conversations I have with various people during the day.
Person: 'So, who's your literary crush?'
I: 'Beg your pardon?'
Person: 'Which author is your, you know, favorite? Dante, right?'
I: Well, Dante's gravitas doesn't allow him to be just a crush. You know Canto 3 of the Inferno, right? We're past that point, he and I. A crush would be the South African novelist, J. M. Coetze.'
Person: 'Why's that?'
I: 'He economizes on speech.'
