>I hate when I write something and only after I have turned the document in do I think of a particularly witty line. (This is also very annoying when I'm arguing with someone and hours later a blistering zinger pops into my head. Actually, I think that's even worse.) This happened yesterday when I wrote a little article for Bugaboo Magazine about a new permanent exhibit on evolution that is at the American Museum of Natural History. Some additions to the collection are 3-D models of fossils that show what humans might have looked like way back when. What I should have written, but didn't think of until it was too late, was, "Like Joan Rivers, Lucy, a three million year old skeleton, got a new face."

Sure, the odds are high that it would have been edited out, but damn it cracks me up.
