Paired Ideas

My son, Joe, shared something from a book on writing that I thought was delightful. Below is the quoted rule followed by the fun example.

Parallel structures can help you pair two ideas effeactively. …With conjunctions. When you link ideas with and, but, or, nor, for, so, or yet, try to make the ideas parallel in structure.

I type in one place, but I write all over the house. – Tom Morrison
