Dear Extremely Minor Character Who’s Shown Up Out of Season,

You don’t add much to the story. A bit of character, a bit of humor, and more than a bit of confusion, because it’s entirely the wrong time for a character like you to appear.

Yet you seem to want to be here. I get that.

What I don’t get is why.

Care to fill me in?

I’m listening.



Dear Secondary But Reasonably Central Character,

Fascinating. You’re entirely unwilling to act like a stupid grown-up for the benefit of my plot.

Thank you for that.

No, seriously. Thank you.
