Miss Information tries to write an essay

1000 words. No problem.

Miss Information writes that essay.

Miss Information does a word count. 1438 words. Oh, dear.

Miss Information edits, compresses, changes. She does a word count. 1438 words. Oh, damn.

Miss Information rewrites, revises, amends. She does a word count. 1438 words. Oh, fuck.

Miss Information changes the font size so it all fits on the right number of pages and sighs with relief.

That's my constant problem with word counts too - I always go over 'em.

Which is why I handed in many a highschool essay in size 8 or 10 font, only to recieve them with comments from teachers such as "Please attach a magnifying glass next time" and "Do not flaunt your youth before my decrepit eyes."
