"your talents will be recognized this year and suitably rewarded."
but then my neuroses kicked in:
"eva, does this mean by the end of 2012 or does it mean by the time twelve months have passed from the opening of the cookie?"
eva: "twelve months. if it's gonna happen in the next month, it will only be small-scale recognition, and you don't want that."
so i pin it to my office wall. look at it occasionally. begin to read it neurotically again:
"your [modest] [absent] [negligible] [insignificant] talents will be recognized this year and will be suitably rewarded [with a] [modest] [negligible] [insignificant] [etc.] [reward]."
that's how we roll around here.
