Weekly Quote

My small calendar on my desk at work (provided by the awesomest drywall company in Maryland) has a weekly quote on it that I often don't read until the end of the week.

Last week's quote:

"Love is a friendship set to music." - E. Joseph Cossman

Cossman lived from 1918 to 2002, was born in Pittsburgh, and is a famous salesman / entrepreneur. He's probably best known for selling things like shrunken heads and ant farms door-to-door.

Other quotes by Cossman:

"Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal."
"Drive-in banks were established so most of the cars today could see their real owners."
"The best way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once."

Random, but that totally reminds me of a buddy of mine who works for a biochem lab. He loved ordering from this one chemical supplier because they would throw in an order of salsa with every order the lab made. They even shipped it in sample jars.

It was really good salsa.

Hahaha, that kind of worries me.

"Sir, your test results are in...I'm so sorry, but it looks like you have Salsa."

"NOOOO! Not the big S!"

"The outlook is good though, it's only a Mild case of Salsa."
