"What is more important- truth or fact, and why?"




— Asked by Anat Eliraz


Who, where, when, how? They all fade into insignificance unless propped up by a good, solid, "What?"—preferably with at least two or three exclamation marks.
I can't begin to count the number of times I've inadvertently omitted the What from my babblings, only for the listener to fix me with a perplexed, incredulous stare and emphatically demand that I supply one.

I suppose that's a truth, though—rather than a fact—for want of a verifiable external existence. The "What?!!!" generally gets packaged up and delivered to me as part of a larger, opinion-based declaration about where I ought to go and what I should do there.
