The Reality of Persuasion

14 Oct

So pretty much the only thing I’ve gotten out of my English 400 (writing for citizen leaders. ?) class so far:

“Dorothy returned to full-time work a year and a half ago, after I quit my job.  The deal was that I would take over the cooking, but she loves to see her husband as the inspired author and herself as the able enabler.  My wife is a babe, and many babes go for inspired authors.  Of course, she might be persuading me: by acting as the kind of babe who goes for inspired authors, she turns me on.  Seduction underlies the most insidious, and enjoyable, forms of argument”.
