Round Peg Square Whole

“You can’t fit a round peg in a square whole.” Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be that round peg? Let’s say you are the round peg living in a box of square pegs. All the square pegs know you don’t fit in, and you know you don’t fit in, but you are in the toy box with them, so you pretend to be as square as you can pretend to be. There is no option to get out of the box, as you've been in it too long and the lid is closed. So, what’s a round peg to do? The round peg just hangs out with the square pegs, trying to fit in as best as a round peg can, waiting for the times that someone will try to fit the round peg into that square whole. And someone always does try, and it always fails. So the peg gets thrown back into the box, instead of moved to a box of round pegs where it belongs.

Cheap vodka, or LSD? I vote the latter.

On second thought, both.

Agreed...this week needs both.
