What did they do to annoy you, tea to weak?
I recently called an old friend, a Rhodes Scholar, and asked what he was working on at the time.
He replied that he was working on "Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminium and steel under a constrained environment."
I was impressed!
Upon further inquiry, I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water under his wife's supervision.
Subject: I had it all
I talked with a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.
He said, "Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed,
I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library.
"I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage. ”
I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce? ”
"Oh no, nothing like that," he said. "No, no.... I was paroled."
