    Talking "The straw that.....


    ....broke the camels back."

    "That's the last straw"

    "The shortest straw"

    Why is it that this particular single, individual, piece of straw has been scape goated?

    It's not like he was alone. He did have at least one accomplice. What gives?

    Because it has always been a slacker. If it was motivated it would not always be the last one and hence be the focus of attention. It probably was an "only" straw in its family and did not learn the art of blending in and going un-noticed.

    Maybe the last straw contained a gravity well that made it much heavier than other straws.

    I'm honestly suprised it took you three hours to see that. The baby must be taking up a lot of your time these days.

    How does it feel being a dad? Haven't talked to you in a while Easy.
