RANDOM THOUGHTS: I have had a couple of flies in the house the last couple days. I have not killed them yet but I am getting closer. Today, I retrieved the fly swatter from its hanging place on my garage wall and brought it in doors.
I try very hard not to kill anything if I can help it but so far, I have not been able to catch and release these fast guys.
When I retrieved the fly swatter, this thought came to my mind. Flies were so annoying at one point in time that they inspired an invention that was named after them, just to get rid of them. Thus, we have, "The Fly Swatter."
I find this very impressive. So far, I have not been annoying enough or puny enough to inspire someone to invent something that bears my name, just to get rid of me. Sure, sure, my wife, Denice and many countless others may have some things in the works but so far, nothing viable.
However, I believe I still have some good years yet so there is still hope. So help me keep an eye out for any inventions called, "The Dave Swatter" or a similarly named products. If you find one, you will know I have reached greatness at something.
