Upon finishing a scholarly essay:

Tannis: I want the MLA Style Guide for Christmas
Friend T: Why?

Tannis: Because it’s useful
Friend T: So is a handgun but you don’t want one of those

Tannis: How does a handgun help me reference shit?
Friend T: You just said useful.

Tannis: Useful to my craft.
Friend T: Well, shit, specify.

Tannis then discovers the Works Cited option in Word 2007:

Tannis: Wait. Never mind. Word does Works Cited. Score.

Laughter from Friend T

Tannis: It’s like the invent of calculators, but for writers.
Tannis: No. Wait. That was the word processor. DAMN YOU LOUSY METAPHOR!
