And that’s just what they did.

I wore my spiffy semi-new-ish boots to work tonight.  I didn’t plant them in anyone’s crotch though I wanted to.  I did, however, walk.

Tom Robbins, love his heart, said;

You’ve heard of people calling in sick. You may have called in sick a few times yourself. But have you ever thought about calling in well?

It’d go like this: You’d get the boss on the line and say, “Listen, I’ve been sick ever since I started working here, but today I’m well and I won’t be in anymore.” Call in well.

(Yee Haw! Bet you never expected Tom Robbins and Nancy Sinatra in the same post.)

    I once heard Nancy Sinatra was reduced to doing solo gigs for mob bosses birthday parties.
