While I rarely golf, I do insist on taking mulligans. A mulligan is what they call taking another shot cuz your first one went ‘thataway.’ The term was invented by [tag]Abner Mulligan[/tag] who famously said to his wife one day, “Yes, Honey, your ass does kinda look big in that dress.” Tell me he didn’t need a do-over…hence the term ‘mulligan.’
Like Abner, I need do-overs about once a day. I would love to have a second chance on a lot of things, particularly at work. i do think it would be fair if you could store them up, like unused vacation days. Some days are like that.
It might be coming, too. After all, we now have–TIVO. This is the ultimate do-over machine. Not since sliced bread and $4 lattes has anything meant so much to so many. Someone talking too loudly at the key moment of the movie? No worries, back ‘er up. Want to watch SportsCenter and Jon Stewart?…no problem. You CAN WATCH TWO PROGRAMS AT ONCE. Got invited over to friends and you don’t want to admit you are addicted to Boston Legal? TIVO it.
If I owned TIVO, I would increase the price by 10% every six months.
