Bone chinaroons in the stage directions reinforce plot developments?

I'm back! Disaster over! My power supply arrived, and I put it all back together again. I've learned a few things over the last week:

  • Huh? I can repair computers? When did I learn to do that? Did I get some skill points and not even feel them get distributed?

  • I have critical self-doubt issues which are slowly eating me alive and stopping me from doing anything. I must do something about this.

  • One should plan out a list like this before one attempting to draft it, because if you run out of stuff, you'll feel like a fool. XP


Anyhow, I was reading Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll House" (a play) out of a textbook I had laying around, and I noticed these questions at the end...

Notice anything about what was almost question three? "Bone chinaroons in the stage directions reinforce plot developments?" That's not a question, it's an offer! XD I have a lot of counter-questions, though: what the heck is a chinaroon? How can I bone it in the stage directions? Are chinaroons hawt? How would that reinforce plot development? Why do I want to answer, "Don't mind if I do?" See, the way this is phrased, I end up with a mental image of the chinaroon as something I would want to bone.

I find this simple series of typos to be rather inspiring.

1: Same way you know how to design semi-learning D&D-playing bots! (I think you said something in that dream about us fiddling with computer parts)

2: We believe in you, Sam!

3: A fool? YOU? The wisest of us? You are the least foolish of anyone I know!
