Quotes of the Day
“The man who says he is willing to meet you
halfway is usually a poor judge of distance.”
– Laurence J. Peter
“There are only two kinds of scholars; those
who love ideas and those who hate them.”
– Emile Chartier
When hiring new staff at the public library, I always
ask applicants what sort of supervision they’d be
most comfortable with. One genius answered, “I’ve
always thought Superman’s X-ray vision would be cool.”
My niece was thrilled to hear that a new car wash
was opening up in her neighborhood. “How convenient,”
she said. “I can walk to it!”
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept
hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always
had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing
golf. Always something more important to me. Finally she thought
of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home one day,
I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny
pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then
went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came
out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, ‘When you finish cutting
the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.’ The doctors
say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp. 😱😁😎
