Did He Really Say It? Probably.
John Lennon said, sometime about 27 years ago, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
He was wrong. Work is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans. And, boy, did work happen to me. It's been one, steady grind since before Thanksgiving. And the worst part of the whole megillah is that the things that are coming in are not very interesting. In fact, they are downright boring. I should spell that with a capital B.
Oh, yeah. The phrase is part of the lyrics of Beautiful Boy from Double Fantasy, Lennon's last album. The song is about his son, Sean.
