A colleague of mine recently found himself forced to assume the role of a math tutor to a pair of guests.
“M -EFFIN LEE”: (Yeah, that’s what we call him; it’s not as cool as “The Hook”, but its pretty close!) How many bags would you like to store, folks?
YOUNG EINSTEIN: One and a couple!
“M-EFFIN” LEE”: I’m sorry, how many?
YOUNG EINSTEIN: (Looks around at his three bags) One and a couple!
This isn’t just funny, it’s an indictment of the modern educational system… Young Einstein could have also said “One and four less than seven.”
As for my Sunday, it was filled with the usual colorful characters;
- A birthday party consisting of a dozen 16-year-old Kim Kardashian clones whose attire made the real deal look like Mother Teresa ! Seriously, just picture Christina Aguilera, but waay sluttier… I was worried I’d be arrested for simply being in the same lobby as these prepubescent swamp donkeys.
- Having hung-over cougars and drunken Alpha males in the same lobby at check-out time doesn’t mix; the cougars circled the males, who talked a good game, but couldn’t actually close the deal. The spectacle got old quick.
TIME FOR OTHER BUSINESS..
A shout-out to my newest blog buddy, Kristen Lamb and her best-selling tome, We Are Not Alone: The Writer’s Guide to Social Media. Give it a try, folks. You won’t be disappointed…
CHECK IT OUT!!
My first foray into blogging minimalism, 1,001 Reasons Why Steve Sucks… is up and running. Give it a look-see, will you?
AND FINALLY, A SUNDAY TWEET FROM THE HOOK…
This was how my day ended; not with a whimper, but a bang – almost!
Never thought I'd say "Excuse me, folks, but if you could refrain from dry humping on the valet deck, I'd appreciate it.' But I just did.—
