I have a Slinky on my desk, one of the office presents given me by my wife.
Some people can't be in the office without picking it up and playing with it. (Jason resists -- instead he shoots nerf hoops.)
Jill was one of those people before she moved to the milder climes of the east coast. Maybe that's why she thought to forward this quote to me:
“Some folks are like Slinkys - not good for anything, but you smile when you push them down stairs.”
Just my thoughts,
