Though it’s generally believed I don’t make mistakes, I admit to making more than my share in my lifetime. There are those who would argue that but I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight. When you get to a certain age you reflect on your life and, hopefully, have only a few regrets. Not that I’m at that age mind you, but I had an extra hour with nothing to do so I did a little reflecting anyway. I’ll probably regret this but here goes:
I’m told when I was born I was late. I’ve tried to be reasonably punctual ever since.
When I was in the military I misidentified a UFO on radar as being Martian when clearly it was from another solar system altogether. However, because of this mistake, I was given a promotion and a substantial increase in pay. Go figure.
I once bought a Chevrolet Vega. To compound that mistake, I bought another Chevrolet (a Malibu) 25 years later. Now, I don’t mean to offend GM or Chevrolet fans who may be reading this, but these two particular cars were the worse cars anybody has ever owned. I believe the Vegas have all disappeared from the planet since I never see them on the road or at any car shows. They had a habit of turning to rust while still in the showroom. Malibus are still being manufactured but I haven’t a clue why that is.
I didn’t buy Apple stock in 1980 (@ $22 (US) a share) because I was allergic to the fruit.
I’ll never be over Macho Grande!
