I Am Damned Proud

I am damned proud.

Most people go through their life never having anything named for them.

I am not yet 50, and I have had two things named for me.

Of course, they are the W__son Curve and the W__son Analogy.

Two things that sound okay, but don't quite work.

The W**son Curve comes in with a great sweeping break, just like a curve should. Of course, it breaks just before the plate, breaking into any hitter's wheelhouse and [usually] flying past me into the outfield.

The W**son Analogy starts out sounding interesting and related to the topic. By the time it's done, the neck is twisted, and the confused, quizzical look is the only thing left of any listener . . .

There are those of us that live to elicit confused, quizzical looks from listeners . . . even if often unintentional

Where is everybody?
