What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

smugness about simplifying

on August 3, 2014

Overheard this weekend:

“Prius owners are just so smug. Ask them, out of friendly curiosity, ‘How many miles to the gallon are you getting?’ and they puff up and say, ‘Sixty!’ Then there’s always a pause before they ask you, ‘And how many miles to the gallon are you getting?’”

“Yeah. I tell ’em, ‘Eight. But I can park my truck on your car.’”

shedding style: refuse

Comments welcome … shall we all keep in mind, as G. K. Chesterton observed, that “Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly”?
