Well, it is Monday

With my work schedule being what it is (the whole Tuesday through Saturday thing), I tend to spend my Mondays as many spend their Sundays. Sitting around at home, getting a few things done, and just plain relaxing and prepping myself for the upcoming week usually tops my list. One of the other things I've noticed about Mondays is that I tend to do more blogging on these dreaded days for some. On that note, I'm writing my third post of the day and I plan on writing another one in a bit.

This post is actually just a joke that my mom emailed to me. I found it amusing. It's not meant to start political warfare or anything, it's just a joke. Enjoy!

President Bush was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the President if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy". So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy."

"No," said Bush, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explained the President. "That's what we would call great loss."

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Bush searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally at the back of the room a small boy raised his hand...

In a quiet voice he said: "If Air Force One carrying you and Mrs. Bush was struck by a "friendly fire" missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaimed Bush. "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be a f ***** accident either."


At 10:26 AM, Matt thought...

I completley agree with the little child, it would not be a great loss and shure wouldn't be an accident either. That was fantastic, love it. Hope you are feelig better, and I am sorry for being so out of it lately, I will talk to you later.
