A young woman came to my friend Bill's 30th birthday party, and all of his old friends were telling her stories of their days together. This was my favorite: "Bill did really well on his SATs in high school, and his first year of college, he was across the hallway from our high school's Salutatorian. There's this legendary quote in our high school, and it's from Bill talking to our Salutatorian. 'You worked hard for four years; I worked hard for three hours. Same school.'"
