"You know, those things at <name of big builders' warehouse> that go "zip" when they move and "bop" when they stop, and "whirr" when they stand still, and get you your eighty-seven 14-foot-long two-by-fours and 200 toggle bolts and a screwdriver all by themselves without a driver. Those things. I write the instructions for the guy who sets it up so that when the clerk types in your order and clicks Send, the thing brings back eighty-seven 14-foot-long two-by-fours and 200 toggle bolts and a screwdriver, and not 13 light bulbs and a garden shovel."
