*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
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.

Thanks, Fedex guy...
[This picture relates to this post only indirectly. However, it does show who wins when push comes to shove.]
Aaron, the guy who drives the Fedex truck on my route, pulled up to the building I was entering. I waited for the elevator, and by the time it arrived, Aaron was inside the lobby. We entered the lift together and made chit chat as we rose to the third floor. We both got out. I quickly picked up a Next Day Air letter from a customer and returned to the elevator and entered. As the door began to close Aaron came out of another office and headed toward the elevator. I pushed the "Open Door" button and held it for him. (Hey, those guys need all the help they can get.)
I got off at the second floor and Aaron went on down to the first floor. I picked up some more packages from an office and returned to the lobby and lo and behold, the elevator was there waiting for me, doors just opening. Aaron pushed the button to return it to me after he left! Thanks, man!
