I walked right into that one...

This afternoon, I was trying to install a compass on my motorcycle, and having a hard time of it. After disassembling the bracket to turn it over, I discovered that they had designed the bracket so that it only fit one way. "There's no useful way to mount this compass," I grumbled to Deborah. "Must be a Tates," she said, without looking up from the computer. I hadn't heard of this brand or type of compass before, so I asked what she meant. "Oh, you know," she said, "he who has a Tates is lost."

Right after I posted this, I saw an ad along the side of my posting notification for a company that sells motorcycle handlebar mounts for just about every gizmo you would want to put on a bike. Part of me is grateful, part of me is a little creeped out.

Hurrah for Deborah! Right on, lady!

For those of you who haven't gotten it yet, try saying the last line out loud... "He who hesitates is lost."
