A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

It Smacks of Scrooge...

Due to poor planning on the part of the people in charge down at UPS, I have been summoned to report to work today, Saturday, Christmas Eve. In my nearly 27 years at UPS I've never had to work a Saturday-- until today.

8:43 AM:
News Update!: I just got a call from UPS and they told me that I do NOT need to report to work today! I have been blessed. But my second thought (after my first thought, which was relief) was that it STILL smacks of Scrooge for all those guys (and gals) who have to work today. Isn't it Scrooge who forced What's-His-Name to work on Christmas (or was it Christmas Eve)? I feel bad for those lower seniority people down at work. And the only reason they have to work today is because UPS management did a piss-poor job of planning this year.

Okay, now that I have that off my chest, here's something a little more light. You just HAVE to click on this link and listen to this. I guess it's been around for a few years, but I just discovered it yesterday on NPR. For a really humerous audio clip CLICK HERE and then click on the red "Listen" button at the top of the article. Merry Christmas!
