Tossed Salad Friday

~~This summer is more than half-way over.

I know when it happened, but how it happened without my input is a whole other discussion.

~~ Are apologies passé? This week, an attorney put me on hold “for a moment,” and after five minutes’ worth of moments, I hung up.  Two hours later he called back, saying, “Ha, ha. Good thing you finally hung up. I forgot about you!” Then there was the writer who completely ignored a deadline. When prompted, he replies, “Ooooh, yeah. I was just so busy.” And a friend told me that a cashier charged her $17.99 for something that cost just $1.79. When the friend pointed out the error, the cashier asked, “Do you want us to honor the marked price?”


~~ A client once asked me to “channel my inner bitch and send a flame-thrower letter.” I thought of him the other day as I sent out a classic bitch-Molotov notice of default.

~~ Everybody has to do what it takes to cool off, as long as it doesn't offend others or break the law, but this article is, in my opinion, hysterical!  http://nyti.ms/13vYK5H There are officers reluctant to give tickets to nude bathers (where would a wet person without pockets place a ticket?), a law enforcer trained to observe who "thinks" a skinny dipper was female, and a term new to me, "helicopter party."

~~ I read a fantastic book, The Magician’s Assistant, by Ann Patchett.  The writing was enveloping and engrossing, and the story was so compelling. After writing here about some clunkers, I wanted to be sure to share a winner with you.

~~ I had the opportunity to see a reimagined Macbeth on Broadway last week.  To me, the play is about men’s and women’s aspirations which, if left unchecked, might drive us to madness. So if you set the entire play in what appears to be a psycho-ward, don’t you already know the crazy happens?


Have a great weekend!
LET’S GO METS!
