Friday Randomness, Vol. 2

A couple of weekends ago, my wife and I were browsing the local Goodwill. It was a good trip. We scored some, well, totally random things, including a book I noticed on the shelf called ‘Radical Careering.’ It’s made up of a hundred what-the-author-considers-to-be truths. They may seem overt, but I actually found them kind of cool and useful.

Truth #11 is a parable she calls ‘Transform or Die’ that goes like this:

The world’s largest man weighed 800 pounds. Doctors said he had to lose weight. His life depended on becoming leaner and changing the way he did things. He didn’t. He was buried in a piano case. The end.

That story didn’t end the way I expected. Happy Friday!
