"You know how sometimes you just feel inadequate, or you just wish you had something really cool to show off to everybody else but you just don't? Well, today in the paper I saw an article that made me feel like...well...maybe I'm not such a loser after all. There is a picture (and I am not making this up) with the following caption: 'Sewage treatment plant operator Joe Polzin shows off a bucket of dried sludge.'"I was curious and googled the article. Here is the picture of Joe with his sludge:
I try not to be a prideful person, so I asked myself....If I had a bucket of dried sludge, would I show it off? Would people with bigger or nicer buckets try to show me up? Would their sludge be drier than mine? Should I smile or look presidential next to the sludge?
Is there a possible reality show here..."Dancing In The Sludge"or "American Sludge"....So many questions!! But, I have to hand it to Joe Polzin. If ever anybody deserved to have his picture in the paper with a bucket of dried sludge, Joe is the man!! Fair Warning Joe...Pride Goeth Before The Fall!!" ~Dad
Sadly, he chose not to smile OR look Presidential. He seems more like, "Who knew I'd have to muddle through so much crap just to get my picture in the paper?" Or maybe he was silently chanting, "Only 2 more years 'til retirement. Only 2 more years 'til retirement." Uh oh, has anyone told Joe that his 401K is probably full of crap too?!
