Analogy Friday: Accents are Nuts

Just as delicious without the ones that fell

Character accents in a scene are like nuts sprinkled on the top of an ice cream sundae. They’re wonderful to have there, and can really enhance the whole thing, but they’re rarely what the thing itself is about — and if you drop them by accident, don’t waste your time trying to pick them back up or making a big apology-production of the fact that you dropped them. Keep eating the sundae.

And there is limited-to-zero value in being an ass and pointing it out if your companion dropped theirs.
