Alex has a hissy fit.

Excerpt from the never-to-be-published book, Of Cabbages and Kings, chapter 3. Alexander Taber, the protagonist, loses control during a board meeting.

“Rita, this is by far the stupidest, most poorly conceived, and most unworkable plan you and your group of butt-kissing sycophants have ever come up with!”

“Butt kissing…?”

“Exactly! Do you have any idea of what you’re asking us to do?”


“It’s not as if you’ve given us a square peg and asked us to fit it into a round hole. Nothing remotely that simple. What you’ve done instead is given us a broken aluminum deck chair and told us to make it work as a suppository. And, ridiculous as that sounds, somehow we’ve got to make it work, because one way or another, whatever we come up with is going to get shoved right up our ass!”
