Quote of the Day (Joe Queenan, on What to do When Disaster Strikes)

“When disaster strikes, identifying the culprit is of paramount importance. If you spill coffee on your laptop, it’s vital to know which brew. Certain flavors—thick, grainy Senegalese High Mountain Blue immediately comes to mind—are more damaging than others and should probably be immediately banned from any table holding electronic equipment. Because of the invasive froth, white mochas are positively deadly. Any coffee containing non-dairy creamer will inflict irreparable damage.”—Joe Queenan, “Moving Targets: No Crying Over Spills—Unless They Flood Your Laptop,” The Wall Street Journal, Feb. 2-3, 2019
