Yes, yes! Been there; done that. Or sometimes, they'd all be
tossing around ideas for making it clearer, but not getting
anywhere. Or making it worse and thinking it was better. I'd
wait for a polite pause in the brainstorming, then offer my "How
about..." option. Same result: nodding heads, scribbling pens,
sounds of "Good one!" or "Yes, that's it."

Kind of funny to watch (and experience).
