I’m behind a guy at the post office who is explaining to an empathetic employee that he needs mail forwarded. There are some unknowns, such as where he’s going to be living next, and for how long. He seemed compelled to explain.
“I probably shouldn’t be going into it, but …”
You don’t need a narrator of this story to point out that any sentence starting with “I probably shouldn’t be going into it,” is likely a sentence that should not be started. It’s surely a sentence that should not be completed. And yet:
“I’m not allowed to go anywhere near my old address.”
The friendly uniformed help behind the desk said that was a shame and helped him to fill out the appropriate form, so that neither he nor any of his correspondence would have to bother anyone at a certain residence any longer.
