Just a Brief Note Admitting I Was Wrong

Carol and I had a minor disagreement at the Halloween party last night. The subject was a quote from Shakespeare. I was certain it was from Othello. She was certain that it was from Mac–oops, I mean “The Scottish Play.” She was right, of course.

And no, I didn’t lose a bet or anything. The point of this point is to pointedly (get the point?) remind me of a simple fact–when I am absolutely, positively, for darn sure that I’m right, that’s a good time to double check. In fact, it’s the best time. One can be racked with doubt. I do get that. Yet sometimes a little skosh of doubt keeps one from making a complete ass of oneself. Politicians and religious leaders fail that test all the time. I don’t want to be like them.

That is all.
