I just got a phone call from Alex. He was at work. He was sitting in his office with his friend and they were talking about the Wiggles, because apparently this is what attorneys do.
“I have you on speaker phone,” he said. “I’m sitting here in my office with my friend who was telling me about watching the Wiggles this morning with his child.”
Evidently the Wiggles sang about Henry the Octopus, then they talked about how octopi have eight legs. Then they talked about cats and how they have four legs.
“So, ha! Four legs!” he shouted triumphantly. “The laws of the Wiggles apply!”
Very calmly I said, “But, Alex, I was the one who claimed that cats have four legs.”
There was the slightest of pauses, then some loud cursing, and then he slammed the phone down.
And that, my friends, is what victory sounds like.
