Thixotropy Can Be A Pain, But It Was The Unbearable Tightness Of Being That Drove Him Mad

It wasn't the agonizing slowness of the ketchup coming down from the congealed bottom (with the bottle turned upside-down) that maddened Mr. Loeffler  -- we have all, and many times, endured that frustrating experience -- but rather, the unbearable tightness of being, the fact that his wife had turned the cap not as he wanted it -- tight like that -- but, rather, as she did, tight like that.
