At the Movies


I received this photo from a fellow networker. He sent with it the following comment:

“I didn’t want to buy a restroom so I had to wait until after the movie.”

I couldn’t have said it any better.

Thanks to George G. for the photo and comment.

Until next time! Use the right words!

As Opposed to “As Late as Possible?”


Once again, a networking meeting provides me with fodder.

This time, it’s a report of a fellow networker suffering from cancer. The group president announced that a member has cancer and he’s fighting it, and “We’re sure he will be back as soon as possible.”

To which I thought, No, he’s going to be back as late as possible. I don’t mean “late” as in “dead,” either. It’s just that it seems obvious to me that someone will be back as soon as possible if he wants to be there in the first place, which he does.

So, duh.

It’s here! My début book, “If You Experience Death, Please Call: And Other Fatal Mistakes We Make With Language” is available on Amazon for only $14.95.  Order here.
