1: d. My story involves a stack of files.
2: b. My main character is feeling nostalgic.
3. a. I must use the word "impeach".

"I once walked into a haha. It wasn't that funny, let me tell you. I didn't see it and plunged straight down. And it wasn't even a proper haha - real hahas don't come that deep, I think. It might‘ve been a hoho, or at least a hehe."

Art's jaw dropped, and simultaneously, so did the files in his arms. Vincente raised his eyebrows, but Art spoke before he could say anything: "A haha? A hoho?"

Vincente shrugged. "I called it a hoho back then. But then again, that was the time I thought 'impeach' means 'to throw peaches at'."

Incredibly Lame Pune, or play on words, anyone? But I (and Vincente, by extension) owe the haha-hoho-hehe pune, or play on words, to Sir Terry Pratchett, who used it in Men of Arms first. And for the uninitiated, a haha is a sort of garden ditch.

An omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles.
