Rock, Revisited

The rock has been returned to its brethren, though it appears to be the black sheep of the family. It is now residing in a stone wall outside my house, and it will be there for all eternity, or until the wall falls down again, at which time someone will wonder why the erratic was engraved with the name of a law firm.

OK - you got that rock mailed to you just so you would be able to use that word someday in proper context, didn't you?! 'Cuz when else would it fit soooo perfectly? I love it!

Good thing I wasn't drinking anything or I'd have to clean off my computer. Thanks for the giggle.

Heh. I nearly choked, for the second time today (also while reading a post). Very very cool.

That is so cool!

I was watching a tv show the other day where these people were rebuilding a castle in Italy that was all made of rock and it had fallen down a hill, they tried to use every original piece of rock they could find instead of using new rock. I can imagine that happening a few hundred years from now, the wall falls down and they put it back together without the rock because it seems like it must have turned up from somewhere else.. ;)

Probably just in front or just behind that wall, you should bury a time capsule that has both these posts printed out, to explain it to generations in the future.. ;)

Cheers!

Good corporate swag makes good fences makes good neighbors?

A perfect ending.

Yeah, I'd love to be around in a thousand years to read the article hypothesizing the ritual significance of that stone in the wall.

I'm back, and it still makes me laugh.
