Will he, or won't he? Will he or won't he? Willheorwonthe?

I'm sure we've all spent some of our days repeating this question, over and over, over and over: sometimes a prayer (as between the pause your thoughts silently cry out "He will!"); sometimes a dirge ("He won't, he won't..."); sometimes a palliative ("I know he won't, so it's ok, so I won't feel too bad when he doesn't"); and sometimes a mantra, a sequence of words whose power derives not so much as from their meaning as their inherent power and repetition.

You know where I was last Friday. Now take a guess where I am today. Now take a guess what I'm doing. And repeat after me: he will, he will, he will; he had better, HE HAD BETTER, AHHHHHHHH!

Nancy -- well, Vinny is a petite 5"2', but she does pack quite the punch! Now I could really use a Joe Pesci type friend who simply by pointing a ballpoint pen at workmen could get them to quote reasonable prices and finish work on time. Nonetheless, Vinny is invaluable! BB
