Odd Assumptions


The person who is happy must not have problems. The article that is hard to decipher must be deep. The wealthy person never had to struggle. The generalization is false because it is a generalization. The more time you have, the better the product. The other people at the party are relaxed. The diversity specialist is unbiased. The professor is well-read. The lawyer cares about justice. The doctor has a healthy diet. The person who favors higher taxes is generous and the person who doesn't is greedy. The eloquent person is smart. The shy person would enjoy being outgoing. The city dweller is savvy. The country-dweller is unsophisticated. The professional football player is dumb. The professional golfer is smart. The European is worldly. The illegal immigrant wants citizenship. The elementary schoolers won't understand Plato or Aristotle. The novel is better than the movie. The blonde is dense. The brunette is bright. The handsome man is conceited. The new car is owned. The banker is heartless. The translation is accurate. The artist can paint. The neat desk reflects an organized mind.

The neat desk comment cracked me up! I don't know if my desk would be considered "neat" but if I file something away in a drawer, you can guarantee that I will forget all about it. I am one of those individuals for whom out of sight is truly out of mind. Thank goodness for steno notepads...

CincyCat,

I'm in the same league. Various papers are used as reminders. File them away and I'm in trouble.

Michael
