Going to be a great wit...

The other night the Symphony Chorus had a rehearsal in spite of a downpour of rain so heavy that getting out of my car was akin to jumping fully clothed into a swimming pool. During the rehearsal, we heard that this coming weekend's piano soloist, playing Rachmaninov's Paganini Variations with the symphony, recently found out that she is pregnant with twins. Upon which my mouth slipped into auto-pilot and said, of its own accord: "So now she's practicing for three."

This is why my father used to tell me, "You'll be a great wit some're a half-wit already."
