It’s an Anglepoise because you press your face too close to the page when you read and there’s never enough light. And you won’t wear glasses because you say your nose is too small, and with glasses you’d look like a mole. Which you don’t. Wouldn’t. They’d suit you.

I do give these things quite a lot of consideration, you see. The devil’s in the detail.
