NOTE: Currently reading "Short Talks" in Plainwater which is sort of like this. I wrote these a few days ago now and just started reading this section today so the apparent similarity in purpose was a bit striking. There may be a few more of these--anything that comes to me expressed without line breaks and about a collective in some sort could end up here, as long as it doesn't just end up purely ridiculous if I put it in one sentence. Then again, the second one I've already got here is somewhat ridiculous itself, but that's the joke.
