New Slogan For New Mexico

I recently took a day off from my usual workday drudge to spend a few hours doing some of the things I enjoy doing – like writing these blogs.  The morning went well, but my wife and I shortly discovered that people around us seemed particularly disorganized.  Particularly drivers, who seemed to be generally lost or disoriented:  Cars making left turns from right lanes, stopped for no reason, going too slow, or – the one I like – driving with improperly secured loads.

My wife suggested that these people were “on the border of something wrong with them.”  And it hit me.

We need to change “New Mexico: Land of Enchantment” to “New Mexico: On the Border . . . of being a little bit off.”

In all fairness, I think some of the disorganized drivers were just looking for garage sales – or “Garage Sailing” – without paying attention to much else.  Hope Dad likes the used junk they buy for Fathers Day. 

Happy Fathers Day all!

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
