An homage to Billy Boy
Ah, Billy we hardly knew ye. Billy Mays, him of stentorian tones, stilted pointers, close-cropped beardlet, was -- and maybe still is -- THE huckster extrordinaire. It is he, and his ilk, that inspire my blog title: "But wait, there's more..."
So we put down the phone, fingers poised to finish dialing (we can't call just yet, even though OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY! Right now!) and...uh...we wait. Breathlessly. Because there's more.
Free, the most powerful word in the English language.
"We ain't done yet, folks! Yes, there's more!"
Thank you Billy. We'll wait, because there is more.
Tomorrow: "Prayer Flags..."
