This is an rough excerpt from Alistair A. Vogan's By Degrees, The Gentlest Asinine Expression.
anyone who's heart has ever ached
who’s been alone
This book is for you.
and who has thought about the future of this planet
Or, specifically, if there will be flying cars. Or electric pants? Will monkeys someday rule the earth?
And for anyone who can knit
This book is for you, absolutely.
For anyone who knows where I left my car keys, or saw me holding them at some point this week or who was the previous owner of my 1998 Toyota Tercel but neglected to give me the extra set of keys when you sold the thing to me.
I had you in mind when I wrote it.
You were close to my heart throughout the process…
For anyone who called “just to say I love you,"
I thought of you as I wrote it.
