Why I can’t keep my resolutions.

“I have resolved to be more positive.” I told Eric, “From now on, I will only say good things. For example: A few of the books we sold at the lit conference today were interesting and attractive.”

“How’s that positive?” Eric asks.

“Because what I actually think is that some of the books were the moronic drivel that forced me in to chapter books at a very tender age,”

“And ‘moronic dribble’ isn’t a positive way to describe books.”

Since Eric is an engineer, I assume he must need a vocabulary lesson. “No, you missed my point, I said ‘drivel’, not ‘dribble’. ‘Dribble’ is the mess that comes out of your mouth when you’re half asleep… oh.”

Sometimes the engineer can be quite perceptive.
