America’s new spy trick
While it is nearly always a mistake to tell somebody about a dream you had, this one is short. Last night two friends and I were hiking along a creek, when up ahead on the left were Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy singing Something Stupid. My friends were pretty excited and ran ahead to listen and tell the Sinatras how awesome it was. Now, I would like as much as anyone to listen to Sinatra sing in person -- especially as it's really hard to do now -- and woo hoo with the best of them -- but NOT THAT SONG. I hung back and cleaned my sneakers with toothpaste and my index finger.
When I caught up after the song, it was too late for me. Frank was touched by my friends' enthusiasm and showed his legendary generosity by inviting both of them to his place for barbecue and giving them front-row tickets to an upcoming show. All I got was a chance to wave at him as they all hiked away up the hill together. The lesson? This is what integrity will get you in this life. On the other hand, my sneakers whitened up surprisingly nicely. --Tom Toles
