I've been in a training class for the past few weeks and today we had a speaker who introduced his topic by telling us,
"I grew up in Franco's Spain, a dark place where people had moles on their faces."
In what parallel universe is that not a non sequitur?
I suppose maybe one where I attend work related trainings that involve lectures about Fascist Spain's dermatological disorders? In fact, I'm pretty sure that was a subplot that I read in a Pynchon novel.
