Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Narrative neatness

You know how in movies and books and whatnot, when the protagonist is grappling with some internal problem, they inevitably get just the insight they need at just the right moment?

Some random friend or confessor or dispenser of wisdom? Someone with just the right anecdote or question or tough love?

Yeah. Real life isn't like that.
