BEING HUMAN BEINGS, such as we all are, to the best of my knowledge, we tend to, on a fairly regular basis, do dumb things.
Of course, there are different Levels of Dumbness.
Looking back to your Senior Prom and remembering how difficult it was trying to teach a sheep to slow-dance.
Making anonymous obscene phone calls to 911
At Christmas, giving your wife or Sweetheart a gift card – to the local Dollar General store.
Trying to impress your date by ordering in French – at Taco Bell.
Going into a Biker Bar and ordering an Appletini.
Going to college and majoring in Theater, with a minor in Political Science.
I did that one myself. Smart move. I still had the cap and gown on when I realized that the only things I was actually qualified to do were to either stage a coup or turn Ecuador into a musical.
But, perhaps, the dumbest thing I have ever done, aside from various interpersonal relationships with unstable, but attractive women, was the time I held hands with an 800# Gorilla.
