    The whole of the day should not be daytime; there should be one hour, if not more, which the day did not bring forth.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Look Johnny, Spig just joined the Navy. I’m married to it. I run the mess hall. I swab the deck. I chip the rust. You’re afraid that they’ll kick Spig out of the Navy. I’m afraid that they won’t.
