Up here in the Northern wilderness us folks mos' often use the colloquial
phrasingology fer such stuff, like: "The user takes 'e's mouse an' chooses
'e's menu..., by gosh." or "Gar, 'e'll click dat button, fer sure."
Don't matter none, nohow. Dem pages get ripped outta da manule fer use inna
privy anyways.

Sorry, it felt like Monday today, and I just couldn't resist. :-)
