Chantal is having a relationship with a sentence. Just one of those things � a chance meeting that grew into something important for both of them. They like the same things. She took it to a party. They were a big hit. The perfect couple. Everybody knows about her and the sentence. The sentence spent most of last year in Czechoslovakian for political reasons. But it was recently translated back into English. In order to stop the sentence being deported, Chantal has arranged to have it read into the Library of Congress. However � when the time comes, she discovers that she can no longer read. She has no idea what her sentence is about.
The above is from Neil Gaiman's series, Sandman, specifically the trade paperback called "The Doll's House." Thanks to Alseides for putting it up on her website for me to steal.
