I received an e-mail from someone who asked me to visit their Web site. I did and was struck by a line at the bottom of their index page about seeing "how a table worked". I think they meant "table" as it relates to Web page design, but I decided to have a little fun. Here is my return e-mail to them...
I visited your page and was struck by this statement at the bottom of your index page:
(Hey--I just wanted to see how a table worked. . . !)
I too once did not know how a table worked. I used to eat each meal delicately balancing my food in my lap. The plate, napkin, and silverware were never a problem. I found that keeping a full glass of milk sitting on my knee was a challenging proposition. After literally crying over the spilled contents one too many times I thought that there had to be a better way. Once while dining with friends, one of them made a suggestion that would change my life. I was having a difficult time enjoying my soup course as the bowl sat in my lap and I tried desperately to balance a thin stemmed wine glass on my knee. After spilling some of the scalding hot soup on my leg one of my friends said: "Steve, why don't you see how a table works." It all of a sudden struck me just like a salad plate hitting the floor. Put my meals on the table, and eat them while they are on the table, and I won't spill anything! I had always noticed that almost everyone else I knew had obviously already figured out how this table thing works. So I went ahead and tried the table and you know what, it worked wonderfully. So I was so glad to read on your Web page that you too have found out how a table works. I commend your work in spreading the "table" gospel by putting that statement on your site. I hope more people discover how the table works and someday we can rid the world of spilled food by having all meals on the table.
