THIS SHORT WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 12-24-08)

Your assignment–if you are as brave as you look!–is to memorize your favorite bar quote and then tell it to everyone you meet on New Year’s Eve. You never know, you might inspire someone or put a smile on someone’s face or even change some person’s life. Can you think of something better or more profound to accomplish at the very beginning of the New Year? I didn’t think so.
So good luck with your assignment, all you IMF individuals, and enjoy what’s left of this year!
