A few years ago my sister helped me with a paper I was having difficulty starting. I thought her words might be useful for all those sad and panicked English majors out there:
Trampolines are quite a bit like Canadian literature in the sense that both can be used, or abused. One must not jump too high on a trampoline, Canadian lit., being of a more fragile nature, should not be jumped on at all. One is not encouraged, yet still can, crease a book of Canadian lit., yet a trampoline can not be creased. Some trampolines do disassemble, however, for convenient storage.
THE REST, OBVIOUSLY, WRITES ITSELF.
