Lint in Literature: Line of Fire

I'm reading Line of Fire by Stephen White and have to return the book to the library (or keep accumulating fines). I'll return it today and see if they have another I can check out or maybe they'll re-shelve it before I leave and i can check it out again. Either way, it's fine. The book is intriguing though not the best book I've ever read. I do want to see what happens.

Last night as I was trying to read as much as I could, I read these lines:

When I am on my game clinically, I can be astute. I can take almost invisible threads from a patient's life, almost undetectable affective lint from a patient's story, and weave the wisps of psychological reality into a lifeline that can guide her back to the place and time where the fabric began to unravel.

I think that's a nice use of lint in literature! Paints a nice picture.

How are you doing? Have any lint stories to share?
