Trust me, it’s great,” Cynthia said. “I’m sure it will make you very popular when you post it.”

“It’s not that I don’t trust you, Cynthia,” Dan said. “It’s just that you seem so languid. Are you ill?”

“No, I’m not ill, Dan,” Cynthia said, “But I am bored. You’ve been writing and editing that thing for hours and I’ve read draft after draft and I think I’m too close to it to see it for what it is.”

“I can’t win with you, Cynthia,” Dan said. “This post is my masterpiece and all I ask for is your support and your honest feedback.”

“You want my honest feedback, Dan,” Cynthia said. “Fine, my honest feedback is don’t quit your day job.”
