Tossed Salad Friday

~~When I opened the Fed Ex envelope from the other attorney, the stench of cigarettes was nauseating. It was hard to clear it from my nostrils… and my office. I can’t even return the “favor,” because my computer doesn’t seem to have a stink-button to douse my e-mails to him.

~~Doesn’t it seem that the less we use snail mail, the more that charities use (unsolicited) address labels to raise funds? I believe I could wallpaper a bathroom with all the address labels I’ve received in just the past few months! (Does anyone ever say, “Oh, great! I needed these, so I’ll send the charity $20?” Someone must, right?)

~~ I went to a high school sporting event the other day.  I’ll be the first to admit that I know little about lacrosse, but how can spectators yell “Pick it up!” and “Slow it down!” almost at the same time?

~~ Why does someone say, “Can I help you?” if they have no authority or desire to do so? Just say “hello” and tell me to keep moving, or avoid eye contact completely, please.

~~ Mark Sandford’s going to congress. Really, SC voters?
                                                                                                        
~~ Sunday is Mother’s Day, of course. Though I have no mother to call or visit, I am a lucky person to have so many women in my life who are a tad older and a bit wiser; I thank each and every one of them. You can certainly mourn your loss today— leave room for me on the pity bench— but take some time to thank the smart woman who mentored you, the kind one who offered up her shoulder for you to cry on, the crafty woman who taught you her art, and the wise one who counseled you on how things were done back in the day.  They’ll appreciate being appreciated!

~~ If you have 9:22 now, or later, please watch this film of a David Foster Wallace commencement speech. Too often we think we're central in a universe that barely knows we exist.

Have a wonderful weekend! As I’ve said countless times before, my teams need to win.
LET’S GO RANGERS, KNICKS & METS!
