Opening Arguments

A burning question

We had a fire drill at work today, and it made me feel like I was back in high school. I considered skipping out and heading downtown instead of going back to work when it was over. But I probably would have gotten caught, like the time when I was a sophomore and I was in study hall when the fire-drill bell sounded. "Let's go to Murphys," a bunch of us decided. "They never take attendance in study hall." Well, they did that day, and we ended up in detention. How come the people who routinely break the rules so often get away with it, but the ones who decide to do it once for a lark so often get caught?

And you're NOT Barack Obama. Some guys can just get away with everything!

Some of us old-timers remember Joe Btfsplk of Li'l Abner cartoon fame ...the jinxed guy who went around with the dark cloud over his head. I am the same way. When forced to do the shopping at the Meijer store, it matters not which line I choose at checkout because that line will always be the slowest moving.
