OK, so here's what I'm thinking. I want something that has nice behavior everywhere except for one point, where I want things to kind of go sour. I was thinking along the lines of converging to $\displaystyle f(x)=\frac{1}{x}$ but that function is not defined at 0.

Am I even thinking right on this?
