Do I like and appreciate this poet's work? Yes, in fact I do.
But is one of my favorite television shows on tonight? One with fiendishly complex plotting, one that I desperately anticipate each week? Yes, a brand new episode.
Do I, in fact, have DVR for just such occasions as these? Yes, I do.
Am I in attendance at the reading? No, I am not. Clearly.
And does the television show start in eleven minutes? Yes, it does. Actually, five minutes.
And will I be watching it? And will it all have been worthwhile? Yes. Yes, I will watch it and it will definitely--definitively--have been worthwhile.
