If I had only known...

... how hard it was going to be to teach a pet honeybee how to walk upright, I would never have begun the task in the first place. Now that I am finally ready to reap my financial reward, I find out her life-span is 4 months, and it took 3 to train her.

Ah, Molly, I hardly knew ye. On the bright side, I don't have to spring for a Christmas present.

Solving problems

When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I am finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
