Otter-dogs 86: In ellipsis

I have been reading about time in narrative fiction. According to Genette, the maximum speed of a narrative is ellipsis or omission. This, of course, got me thinking about whether the omission can be part of the narrative or not. I guess if it matters. A narrative entirely of omission would not be a narrative at all. Ellipsis can only be recognised in context.

All of this is potentially really meaningful but I decided, instead, to make a sex joke.
