My literary ambition

...is, before I die, to write a text without one parenthetic phrase enclosed between commas, parentheses, brackets, braces, dashes (be they single or double), ellipses, or any other punctuation device now known or yet to be invented.

(I expect to die at a very old age, shot by a jealous and angry grammarian).
