Marriage 401, Lecture 336: Flat earth society

Me: Do you still have that extra calendar?

SH: Why?

Me: I need it.

SH: That's why we should never throw anything away. It's safer that way. You can never go wrong keeping something.

Me: Of course you can. It's not the end of the world if we don't have an extra calendar in July.

SH: Obviously you learned nothing from that article on procrastination I sent you.

Me: It was not exactly a strong defense of procrastination. It was just a history of the subject.

SH: And look how many great thinkers in history were procrastinators! If it was good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

Me: There are a lot of great thinkers who thought that the world was flat, too.
