Productive Collaboration

A dear friend, working hard to elicit strawman prose from an overly-introspective and meticulous colleague, demanded:

"Vomit it onto the page and let somebody else clean it up!

The colleague replied: "OK, I'm sticking my fingers down my brain!"

Then, after transcribing and editing, the rough-draft document status became: "Now we're trying to get the puke in one place."

And with final tweaking came a request for further detail in one section: "I need a little more vomit here."
