This is called the contract.
I've just had a contract sent to me. One of the promises I have to make is that my book contains absolutely no...
...well, what do you think?
What do you think my book mustn't contain? I'll give you a couple of clues: the book's for the international market, and it's a children's book.
No, not that.
Nope, not that, either.
Well, that's an intelligent guess, but you're still nowhere near it.
All right, then.
I'm having to guarantee that my book contains absolutely no sausages whatsoever.
Yes, that's right.
You know something? Sometimes the world seems so utterly and completely mad that I wonder if I'm hallucinating.
Ah well. All mad together.

Word To Use Today: hallucinate. This word comes from the Latin word ālūcināri, to wander in mind, from the Greek aluein, to be distraught.
Though, actually, I don't really give a sausage.
