I can take a hint.
Careful readers will recall that I broke into the empty towel and toilet paper dispensers at my office a few weeks ago and illegally refilled them. I did this because it was looking like no one else was going to do it, and they were empty, and I couldn’t stand wondering how folks around here were managing to wipe their butts.
So today I found this in my mailbox at work:
So this is sort of a warning to you all, a corollary to the military axiom “Never volunteer for anything.” Never step up and do anything that needs to be done, even if no one knows you did it, or you will find yourself shopping for toilet bowl cleaning supplies.
And a programming note: Tomorrow morning (Friday, August 26) on the Today Show (NBC), Joss Stone
performs live. I first heard this kid when she was just fifteen years old. She sang R&B and soul like a 60-year-old black woman. At eighteen, she’s still a little coltish in her stage persona, but her voice is dynamite. It looks a bit like some producer or manager behind the scenes is trying to make her into the Rhythm and Blues Britney Spears, but I don’t think that will happen, since she is a bit too real. And her voice is a phenomenon. It’s actually a little freaky to see and hear her. Your mind doesn’t want to accept it at first. Check it out while you get ready for work.
