Words I Wish I’d Written: The Great Nutrax Row

IT WAS ON THE Friday of the week in which all these stirring incidents occurred that Pym’s Publicity, Ltd. became convulsed by the Great Nutrax Row, which shook the whole office from the highest to the lowest, turned the peaceful premises into an armed camp and very nearly ruined the Staff Cricket Match against Brotherhood’s, Ltd.

— Dorothy L. Sayers, Murder Must Advertise

Horrors! Not the Staff Cricket Match! Something about this passage just makes me happy.
