I got something in the mail yesterday...it was junk mail addressed to "Lawrence Johnson". Splendid. People already have a difficult time simply pronouncing my name (it's Law-ree, not Lorree) and I have already been dubbed "Larry" by the inimitable Bailey. So why not go ahead and throw Lawrence into the mix? Lawrence E. Johnson. Makes me sound like a middle-aged black man.
In other news...I paid $1.98 per gallon for gasoline this morning! Now there's something to be thankful for. ;)
