Here is a pen and here is a pencil, here's a typewriter, here's a stencil, here's a list of today's appointments, and all the flies in all the ointments, the daily woes that a man endures -- take them, George, they're yours!
— Ogden Nash

Miller is not really a writer but a non-stop talker to whom someone has given a typewriter.
