|I bet there's a whole pile of unclaimed treasure|
in the filing cabinet
I'm amazed whenever I go through the TSA checkpoint at the airport to see their gigantic frame filled with all sorts of goodies--lighters, knives, gun, nunchucks, and any other kind of banned weapon or explosive. I wonder what they do with the excess. I hope they divide the bounty up at a staff poker game. It would be a waste to throw them away and a crime to resell them to a pawn shop owner.
Separately, when I go through the checkpoint, I feel the same obligation to make meaningful chit-chat with the person checking the IDs and those working the scanning machines as I do when I go to my massotherapist. Like I'm really trying to let them know this isn't one-sided and that the public does care about them and we're not just taking their service for granted!
|His wife's going to be really|
annoyed on their next beach vacation
-Favorite golf club: Driver
-On behalf of all people named Adam in the world, would you discourage a courtship and union with anyone named Eve?: Highly. And you'd only get annoying humor at the first meeting anyway.
-Do you give 'a dam(n)' about your gifts?: Yes, I do. I don't want to ever see the gifts I gave away again--they're infuriatingly difficult. But the metal detector...yeah...I'll bury stuff in my yard and my son and I can find it.
-Rate your preference for finding the following objects with your new metal detector: pirate coin, slinky, gold tooth.:
1) gold tooth--it gives the highest potential to make up a good story
2) pirate coin--there are not nor were many pirates in the American Midwest
3) slinky--it's just a token gift
