the wacky roller-coaster ride that is my job

Perversely, one of the coolest things about my job is reading the patents that form the basis for a PTO Examiner's rejections of my claims. Sometimes they seem really, really close until they're read very carefully, and then every paragraph is like a page in a cheap suspense novel.

I'm right in the middle of one right now. I have no idea how it's going to end -- whether my claims are knocked out of the water, or whether there's a clear argument for patentability. OMG.

Can you skip to the last chapter to see how it ends? ;)

You can, but that's the rub! The ending makes no sense without having read the whole thing!
