Longtime readers may recall the sign next to my front door.
Yesterday, it failed me. It failed me in the worst way imaginable:
- The knock occurred during a business call.
- It was religious missionaries knockin'.
I opened the door and was instantaneously awash in their banalities. I tapped on the sign with the business end of the baseball bat in my hand. "Be sure to read the fine print."
They looked at the sign.
"Sound out the words," I coached.
Their eyes grew three sizes that day. Suddenly flustered, they apologized and scampered off.
