Moment of Zen For Abbott and Costello
Leaving Airport Rental Car agency in Denver. The first ten minutes of the vacation weekend
Wade: Ok, where am I going ?
Rayda: Look for a sign that says to 22
Wade: 222 (two twenty two) ?
Rayda: Right, to 22
Wade: I don’t see any.
Rayda: Wait, look over there ! 22
Wade: No, that’s not a sign that says 222, that’s highway 22
Rayda: Right, it points to 22
Wade: But it’s not 222
Rayda: You don’t need to find a sign that says to 22 if it already says 22. Why do you need a sign to say to 22, you are already there ! ?
Wade: because you said to look for a sign that said 222
Rayda: no, I said look for a sign that said to 22
Wade: and that does not say 222, just 22. Wait a minute, are you saying a sign that tells us to go to 22 and not a sign that says highway 222 ?
Rayda: You are exasperating.
