Writers can put words on paper and then rearrange them, cut them and delete them until they’re happy with what they’ve got.Have you ever wished you could do that in real life? Edit what you’ve just said?

I walk into a computer store wanting a new wire thingy that plugs into the laptop one end whilst the other end is split into two, one to connect a normal keyboard and the other to connect a mouse to my laptop. Any idea what these things are called? No, neither have I. So what do I do? I do not sort out the words in my head. I do not edit anything. I simply open my mouth and let out a first draft, saying to the nice man behind the counter…
‘Have you got any dangly bits?’
