Friday Five a day early

Originally published April 20, 2002

The Friday Five I usually copy from Dave Tepper's site is about television this week, and I don't watch commercial TV; therefore, I am totally unqualified to answer any of the questions. I am probably one of the few living, breathing human beings in the country who has never seen an episode of Allie McBeal or even Seinfield when it was in its prime. I stopped watching network television when Cheers went off the air, and I have not missed it at all, except for the popular culture questions I can't answer in trivia contests anymore. I watch TV occasionally, but I usually view sports, the History Channel or the Behind the Music stuff on VH-1. Okay, I confess: I still watch Star Trek reruns in Sci-Fi, too. But that's about it. Needless to say, I do not subscribe to TV Guide.

So, here is a FRIDAY FIVE that I stole from an e-mail about "modern zen."

1) If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

2) If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

3) Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

4) It's always darkest before the dawn. So, if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

5) There are two theories about arguing with woman. Neither one works.
