Like most well-stocked homes, mine contains an 1898 Annual Compilation of Harper's Round Table, from which I selected this page at random:
A pronoun is a word you use when you can't remember what or whom you are talking about. It is especially useful in social situations (hello, uh, you) and permits us to avoid small errors as we forge ahead to grand disasters. It is also useful during the psycho-meteorological jumps attendant to discontinuing a medicine to which one is addicted. My only counsel is, lay in your favorite tobacco products and a few bottles of good wine --it's a stormy few days ahead.
