  1. I love this sentence.
    I don’t know why.

  2. On second thought, I think I know (partly) why I like it: pleasing use of consonants. Hear how “pulled off” and “unfolded” quietly echo each other in sound. And “paper” also reminds us of the “p” sound in “pulled.”

    It’s so poetic, yet so natural sounding.
