Actually, while this is a silly and perhaps worthless exercise (yes, Cindy,
it may very well be), the technique of defining the terms that you'll using
has value, at least for me. How many times do we debate what is something
called. Just establish that in the beginning, then you don't have to worry
for the rest of the document.

"In the beginning of the instruction, describe the item without using the
term shoelace and define your own name of it. Personally, I'd chose Ted for
the string in your left hand and Alice for the string in your right.
Then,throughout the instruction, refer to them by their name.

1. ....
2. ....
3. "With the thumb and index finger of your left hand, grasp Ted about 1
inch from the loose end (the end with the little plastic thingy, also known
as an Aglet) and with the thumb and index finger of your right hand, grasp
Alice about 1 inch from the loose end.
4. ...."

I never thought of this process- I just used various synonyms for my little
composition and it worked. But I think the interviewer liked me!
next time I will try that. My company is laying off every friday so I am on
the lookout for somethign new- I'll try that next time!
