deleting your way to success

Every once in a while, we get a story card that allows us to simplify a requirement or interface, and we get to "delete our way to success"... that is, we end up removing more code than we add, and maybe we don't end up adding any code at all. Today that's what my pair and I did for the first half of our card, and it's so liberating. We don't need to think much about code rot, tests, or any of it... just remove and verify we didn't break something else. Quick win!!!
Thanks to my colleague from Philly, Nolan, for coining this phrase!
