So I was heading to Office Max at 8:30 to get yet another replacement part for the desk that I am trying to assemble. Seems tapping machine threads that are 1) straight, 2) round and 3) of a standard size is a bit too much to ask.
So instead of going down to the shop, getting a standard 6-32 tap I had to go to Office Max to get a new bracket that had straight, round 6-35 threads. Who do I run into but the Michele Obama party of 6000 next door. Secret Service, local cops, TV and a suburban mall parking lot full of supporters. Who knew??
In contrast, I drove by the funeral that was Transylvania University where Hillary was speaking an hour earlier and there were about 500.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
