A couple of days ago, somebody gave me an organisational problem without an obvious solution. This morning I had a thought that may give me a way around it; tonight I found myself saying ‘I haven’t solved the problem yet, but I may have a way of recasting it such that it’s more readily solvable.’

I don’t recall using that particular turn of phrase since I was an undergrad. ‘Non-trivial’ I use… actually, I over-use. And there are several other Cambridge-induced phrasings that still wheedle their way into, if not daily, perhaps monthly life. But this is one I’ve not called on for many a moon.

Welcome back, old friend.
