"In the front, dummy! It goes in the front!"
My co-worker, Teresa Harper, shared a story about her late father.
After her dad and stepmother moved into a new house, they put in all new light bulbs at the same time. A number of months down the road, the light bulbs -- all being roughly about the same age -- began to blow, one after the other. Her stepmother complained that it seemed like every time she flipped a switch, another light bulb would blow.
"That's because you're flipping the switch too fast," her dad said. "You need to do it slower."
She believed him. And he never told her any different.
I wish I could've known him. Now there was a man after my own heart.
