dum. . . dum. . . dum. . . and nothing happened

Voice Over: (Michael Palin) June the 4th, 1973, was much like any other summer’s day in Peterborough, and Ralph Melish, a file clerk at an insurance company, was on his way to work as usual when… (da dum!) Nothing happened! (dum dum da dum) Scarcely able to believe his eyes, Ralph Melish looked down. But one glance confirmed his suspicions. Behind a bush, on the side of the road, there was *no* severed arm. No dismembered trunk of a man in his late fifties. No head in a bag. Nothing.

I'm a huge Monty Python fan and this was one of my favorite little skits. So often, we forget that most of our days are utterly uneventful. So easy to get overwhelmed by the hype on the news.

I used this little epigraph to head my blog post over at Black Ink, White Paper. Hop on over to read about [[[gasp]]] me meeting people over the internet. . .
