Hilarity, and the Grim Reaper

The first hundred pages of any book about the world war are hilarious, then of course everybody dies.
– Ben Elton, on his prep for writing Blackadder Goes Forth

Rather than let my speaking wait until I am spoken to, I decided there was no blessing in ignorance, and I made a call.  If you have any questions, call a certain number, the message from June said.  So I called.

And instead of knowing nothing, I know now that the announcement will come a little later.
