I was lying face-down in one of those special Medieval torture couches at my chiropractor’s office today when I overheard him conversing with one of his other clients in an adjoining room. They were talking about the big California earthquake-cum-non-tsunami.

He remarked that he’d never before seen an event so well-covered by the media that hadn’t actually happened.

I was immediately struck with the urge to pipe up with, “Oh yeah? How about the 2001 Inaugural?” but changed my mind at the last moment. He’s a Republican, and he manipulates my spine. Best to play it safe.

    How about the “year 2000 bug”? Or perhaps the Micheal Jackson case, if acquittal means he really didn’t do it.

    Ooh, good ones both!

    My God, I’d plain forgotten about y2k. If that scare hadn’t happened, we’d probably still be running a DOS-based mail order system via Novell on 386’s at work.

    *Sigh* That would be a dream right about now….
