What kind of furniture would Jesus pick? by Annie Proulx
Annie Proulx does a masterful job in capturing irony on paper. "Where is that stupid mailman?" his mother said, pulling back the curtain and looking for the plume of dust along the road. The woman is waiting for an "Inheritance" from the California State Allocation Department. The woman's son had interited a ranch but she was to fill out information and send it in to the "Department" to recieve her inheritance. This story is an axiom that can be applied to today: if it's too good to be true it probably is.
