You’ve Got a Little Something On Your Forehead

First thing this morning, I was sitting in my office getting ready to start the day.  The #2 in charge of the agency I work for was making his way down the hallway, greeting everyone as he walked by.

He stopped for a moment in my doorway; long enough to tell me good morning and to ask me how I was doing.

I immediately noticed he had - what looked like - an ink smudge on his face and wondered if I should say anything.  It was one of those, "If I had a booger, ink smudge, toilet paper on my heel, etc. I'd want someone to tell me" moments.

So, bravely and - thinking I'm being helpful - I blurted out, "Oh, um, you've got something, looks like an ink smudge...er, on your forehead."

To which he replied, "Oh no, that's my ashes.  For Lent."


"Oh, oh god, I...," I stammered.  "Right.  Lent.  I'm sorry...I'm Methodist."

Good answer, eh? 0_O

The worse part was the look on his face as he explained his ashy forehead to me.  It was complete confusion; as if he couldn't figure out if I was serious (and very stupid or an atheist - or both) or joking (and had a fairly lame sense of humor).  Either way, I'd say his opinion of me likely dropped a few notches - which is great; I totally need one of the highest bosses in the office thinking I'm a half-witted, God-hating Bible-burner with a bad sense of humor.

    One thing I've noticed is that often there are plenty of common myths regarding the banking institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosure. One fable in particular would be the fact the bank prefers to have your house. The lender wants your hard earned money, not the home. They want the funds they lent you with interest. Keeping away from the bank will undoubtedly draw some sort of foreclosed realization. Thanks for your write-up.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I think everything published made a bunch of sense. But, think on this,
    suppose you typed a catchier post title? I ain't saying your information is not good, however
    suppose you added a headline that makes people want more?

    I mean Digitopus » Blog Archive » You’ve
    Got a Little Something On Your Forehead is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo's front page
    and note how they write news titles to get people to click.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about
    everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several
    websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
