I am really pleased that when I decompose !!f(a, b)!! into a sum of !!f_M(a, b)!! and !!f_N(a, b)!!, where !!f_M!! is symmetric and !!f_N!! is antisymmetric, the letter “M” is actually symmetric, and the letter “N” is actually antisymmetric.

Sometimes notation works out and sometimes it doesn't, but I don't think I've ever seen it work out better than this.
