phrases

Spoken conversation is often hard for me, so my brain likes to precompute language to reduce the peak processing load. Usually this happens when I'm doing other things that don't require the sociolinguistic circuitry. I'll get phrases and bits of conversation working themselves out in my head. It's usually pleasant background filler, if I notice at all.

This evening's visible phrase, courtesy (I think) of the combination of graphics homework and too much Puzzlecraft, is "laminar chicken". When I noticed it and queried it, the overexplainer in the back of my head slipped smoothly into an entirely non-verbal sales pitch for the concept. It had tone of voice and the correct overly smooth cadences and attention directions, but it had neither words nor much in the way of point.

Laminar chicken. Apparently it's a useful abstraction. For, um, things.
