Proposal sickness happens when you have written so many proposals for clients over a ridiculously short period of time (some of which are usually written over a weekend), any further requests for proposals that you are tasked with writing results in 'proposal sickness'.
This in turn leads to a rather angry disposition, which can sometimes end in furious swearing and avoid techniques which can include snack eating, spotify playlist making and mindless playing on Facebook...

|7.||a modest proposal|
A Modest Proposal is when somebody suggests that eating babies might not be such a bad idea. This is taken from the satirical book of the same name written by Jonathan Swift in 1729. He frankly suggested that poor people ought to sell their children as food to the upper class in order to stimulate the economy and bring Ireland out of a sort of depression. Here's an excerpt: "A young healthy child well nursed, is, at a year old, a most delicious nourishing and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragoust."
Jane- "That infant child looks delicious. I think we should eat him."
John- "That sounds like a modest proposal to me."
