On a Lighter Note, or, Humility Comes from Our Elders

Was at Walmart a few minutes ago, looking all shiny and new, in my expensive principal dudes from The Bay.

Just as I entered an elderly lady comes hobbling up to me with her cane, asking me if I was handling so and so's account. I looked perplexed. "How does one answer a senile old woman with all Christian charity?" I wondered.

"Oh, you look just like the man... Everyone has a double you know," she said.

I thought for a moment. "He's one lucky guy."

"That's what you think," she said and walked away.

Score one for granny.

I'll get her tomorrow, even if I have to stay up all night thinking of a come-back.
