Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoons, writes occasionally for the Wall Street Journal. Yesterday's column, in which he describes a year spent confronting danger
, was hilarious. Here are two samples that I liked:
Shelly quickly embraced my new attitude and booked us on a trip to Costa
Rica. That country has a huge population of monkeys and no military
whatsoever—an obvious recipe for disaster.
I also took up golf this year because I figured that it would be a good
challenge. So far, the only problem is that in every foursome, there's
always one jerk who gives me a hard time for wearing a helmet.
