Who else but?

One of my favourite Joyce stories, well known but worth repeating with a gorgonzola sandwich and a glass of red:

And what have you been doing all day, asks a friend.
Writing a sentence says Joyce.
Ah, says the friend, looking for the 'Mot juste'.
No says Joyce, the words I had. It was their order I was working on.
