Fruit Pickers


“Look at those guys,” my son says. “They’re all wearing ponchos and it’s not even raining.”

“Well, it was raining,” I say, “and it may rain again. There’s an old saying in the fruit picking business: It’s better to have a poncho and not need it than to need a poncho and not have it. Think about it.”

“Why do I need to think about it?”

“Because it didn’t seem to make much of an impact on you. Want me to say it again?”
