A funny thing happened

At the end of the day, I was going over my appointment book. Making calls, leaving messages, making notes......

I came across a name, Tom Pullengi.

I drew a blank...didn't ring a bell...not a clue.

Who is this guy? Did I miss an appointment?

I went back and forth in my book. No Notes-No Phone # Nuthin!!!!

Tom Pullengi, Tom Pullengi......I was at my wits end.

I had a sip off coffee, lit up a smoke and sat back

DING DING DING!!!!!!!

Tom Pullengi is not a person.......

It is my shorthand note for

Tomorrow, Pull Engine

If I could do 6 of these a day, I WOULD quit my day job
