Haha. You just did it.
Well, sure, I could stop in the middle of a perfectly fine bit of action and say, "She had brown hair, green eyes, wore ordinary clothes and had no decorations that made her stand out." and then try to go back to the passage whose flow I just completely derailed. But I think I'd rather self-test ways of electrocuting someone with a car battery, y'know?
