Coming in Thursday's Party of One

Every so often the universe sees fit to remind me of a lesson I may have neglected.

Because that's how I got my lessons as a child, not from those crazy fairy tales and their "happily ever after" or their "good triumphs over evil" or their "It's OK to use dwarves as slave labor."

No, my life lessons come from observing the human condition. They tend to repeat themselves when I get lazy and don't follow them.

Like when I was slacking on the whole "wear underwear everyday" lesson and then one 90-degree day it came back to bite me " and the rest of my classmates on the bus.
