In the building where I work, there is a company poster up on the wall. It says, " Only one thing is important to us: everything." That just BUGS me to no end every time I see it...(which is pretty much every day). It's cheating to say that! Everything can't be one thing and one thing can't be everything. It's like my old standard answer to that vital and oft asked childhood question, "What would you wish for if a magic genie appeared to you and gave you three wishes?" " I would wish for every wish I made to come true." My juvenile self thought I was so smart to come up with that. But I soon found out that this answer is just plain WRONG. I think it was one of my siblings that pointed out that this answer is not allowed. It's swindling that old genie. Three wishes are all you get. No more, no less. In this same vein, you can only have ONE thing - or a very few things- that is/are really important. Everything CAN'T be important because if it WAS then it wouldn't be important. Do I make sense?
