Where were you on May 9, 1983?
Here I am yesterday, being awarded my 25-year service pin. Although I am noted for longevity in endeavors such as marriage (36 years coming up), devotion to the Orioles through thick and thin (50 years) and regular support of Democrats (begun in utero), I am also very proud of my 26-year employment record. I just began my new position and I am liking it very much; even though I miss a lot about the old job, it's good to change.
Said the man who never changes.
I also tell young people, "wed at haste, repent at leisure," and I knew Peggy for less than 100 hours when I asked her to marry me.
I'm the rule that proves the exception, I guess.
