“x = feathers, y = boards
english: light as a feather, stiff
as a board, she is a feather,

he is a board. logic proof: if light as a feather,
then stiff as a board.

the boy will be stiff if & only stiff
if the girl is light as a feather & not bored.
chemistry & sex ed: if the girl is light as a feather,

as air, as feathery as air, then the boy will be
stiff as a board”

“My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!”
