JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY #0205 . . . OPEN:
I was in a store yesterday when I heard one of those things that just stick in your mind. It was a quote that I found quite memorable, and definitely something that falls into what I have dubbed "fortune cookie philosophy." I happened to overhear one of the staff saying this:
"It's hard to be a peacock when your co-worker is Daffy Duck."
I actually asked her to repeat what she had said, just so I could be completely certain that I had heard what I thought I heard. Yes, I had heard what I thought I heard, and it was just as funny the second time.
I've heard the sentiment before, though expressed in a slightly different form: "It's hard to soar with eagles when you're surrounded by turkeys." But you have to admit, saying it this way is so much more memorable.
