Today, while speaking on the phone with my girlfriend, I heard her say the following in response to all the bad craziness going on in Israel, Lebanon, and the rest of the Middle East. "In the future, we should make it a requirement that all politicians have played RISK to some extent in their childhood."
I then said, "They've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders: never get involved in a land war in Asia."
She followed it up immediately with, "Only slightly less known is never to go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line."
Reason #4,976,453 why I love her.
