"No time to explain. Get in!"
Mindful that I'm new(blame Eratosthenes)
Is it I Lord?
Apparently I missed the spam-slide, unless of course MY brilliant, Mensa, Rhodes, Nobel Prize worthy comments are it.
This is why I quit gambling. I could never see the "sucker" at the table.
Oh yeah, the dog thing. I thought the fast food drive through guy with the operator sort of "built into" the drivers seat, paled compared to this. The whole driver distraction, and entirely understandable "gotta record this with my cell phone" at "highway speed", thing may be a bit dicey though.
Real comment here..please do not delete!
BTW thanks for re-running the "Hands" story. I really miss the days when I could actually write stuff other than snippy comments.
Is it safe to come out now?
Gerard, I am trying to figure out how to search the "headliner" quotes you post at the top of the blog, but I was unable to. Can you help me out?
The quote I was searching for is something about the difficulty of differentiating between a bad attitude and clarity of thought. I have been flattering myself by wondering if this is has been the root of occasional difficulties in some personal and business relationships, while trying to ignore this fellow Occam who keeps brandishing a razor and suggesting that I might be just an asshole.
Regretfully, unless you can supply some of the key words or phrases I can't search the database that contains the quotes that that blog function uses. The database is in another directory and is not searchable from the main page.
Ray, don't punish yourself for the shortcomings of others. What I do is, I make up quotes on the spot to fit the dilemma. Here's one:
"Sometimes it’s better just to eat the soup, and not stir it."
If that doesn't work, set Occam aside and apply the Assholes Get a Punch in the Face line of reasoning. Just my 2¢ worth. I used to give free advice but folks said I was short-changing 'em.
True, he's not a polished orator, but even the first draft of the Gettysburg Address read, "Dude, that was like 87 years ago."
Gerard, here are some key words that MIGHT be in the quote I am looking for:
That last one is a longshot.
Sorry but I couldn't locate it.
