those poor boll weevils

It was beginning to look like the Save the Boll Weevil campaign she started years ago. Then there was that one time she thought it would be great to open a bed and breakfast in Phuket. She almost had her friends convinced until one of 'em saw a cannibalistic headhunter program on National Geographic. Years later she was thankful for that when the tsunami hit.

Still, she wondered, was it she had no follow through. Soon the alarm was blaring and she rolled over to turn it off. There it was in a frame on the bedside table, the first thing she saw every day. A picture of Vince Lombardi with that famous quote,

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.

Today was gonna be her day. She would make it that way. After the shower she would put on one of the Save the Boll Weevil t-shirts. It was all the shirts she had left so she would find herself grateful for that campaign. Even if it never took.

Today I am grateful for humor.
